    I found it entertaining that the "ignorant and inexperienced" guy not only knows what he was talking about but he has his own personal dynamometer (yes personal) in his shop and backs up his remarks with numbers he produces.

    Ah crap, it won't matter to the keyboard legends, I suppose? I've read their other posts and nothing will convince them that they could possibly learn something from others.
    I consider you a legend, and not the least bit full of yourself Mr. Song Chain Match 5"!

    GN/Steel, you are correct that I had no idea about all the underlying other issues surrounding those threads. Apparently there were issues outside the threads I've seen that caused the one thread to go hostile more quickly than seemed appropriate from the outside.
    My stab at satire was based on a couple instances where GN had posted that he needed to correct mistakes because people may get the wrong idea if they were left uncorrected.... That plus the discussion of opinion/fact in the base circle thread, me being a bit bored and you end up with me having a bit of fun at GN (and some unnamed gurus) expense.
    I do learn from the Dyno forum, but figure it's better if I lurk rather than be directly involved...

    I have said it before on these boards, and I will repeat it again... I learn something everyday. If not here, then at my job. Maybe that's why I have been here for 23 yrs. And one of my favorite qoutes is, "The more I learn, the more I realize I don't know shit" Kieth Black. As Steel said, there was an inside track that many of you weren't privy to. And maybe the next time I won't be so nice and everyone will have a better understanding of why I post what I do. The guy is a back stabbing A-hole. After he completely deleted an entire post and rewrote it, he claims to have been on the phone and didn't realize what he had posted. Truth is prbably more like he got on the phone, checked with his guru buddy and he found out he was full of crap and edited the whole damn post. Thankfully i quoted it before he had a chance to delete it, and if you care to go back and read it you will see what I am refering to. All of which is why my sig line is what it is! I will probably be much more reserved about what I respond to in the future. If you guys what to sift thru the BS to get to the FACTS that's fine with me.

I guess because I knew what was going on, the humor was lost to me in what David and others' reactions were. They clearly didn't get what GN was referring to, and that he had good reason. Understandable.

    it is time for my monthly "I'm gonna regret this post"

The problem I see with alot of what goes on in these boards is that someone comes on here spout to be a GURU and leads those that are truly clueless, really wanted some good info, and get lead down some dark path, feed a bunch of useless crap that is claimed to be the gospel truth due to the guys vast experience on the subject. Go back and read post #69 on that thread. See that RECOMMENDED cam. It's the same damn cam he recommends for every damn motor. On could link you to another site with different motor, in a different boat and the cam will be the same. It's a one size fits all wet exhaust cam I guess. But the worse part is that this person seems to have it out for some else on these boards, that has been more than helpfull to anyone that asks , and always keeps a fairly low profile, but has to keep dealing with the personal attacks from this same individual. And like I said earlier, it got bad enough for Rex to shut down the thread and banish one person from the boards. The last thread I got that lit up over dealt with ARP L-19 rod bolts, and that was with a comrad of the same individual. So like I said, David, it was never about you or anyone else, and apolagize if you anyway think it did.
    I had no idea, I thought it was a well written joke (only).

    Sorry.
    If it was meant to be funny, I missed it, but now that you put it that way....LOL......it is pretty funny... Guess maybe the joke's on me?
    Come on Steelly, how could you have missed that?

    Superman has to ask GN7 what underroo's to wear, but the answer is of course Art Anderson action figure underwear.
