    Well just go get yourself a Pro-Comp crank if that's what you're going to do.

    If you're making any power at all, buy a decent crank or expect the kind of results you and I both had with the forged Chevy. Yea, some people get away with running junk and it lives, but the odds are against you. The higher end Scat, Callies Compstar series (which I believe are offshore forgings), even Eagle/Ohio Crankshaft are better bets than the ProComp/SGI's.
    Regardless, I would mag and check for journal roundness/crank straightness with any "budget" crank. Lots of stories of issues with Ohio and Eagle in this regard. Good luck....

    If you're looking for a good crank at a reasonable price, check out Callies Comp Star on their site. I have one and think it's a good deal so far. It's forged over seas, but machined here by Callies. I got mine through a machine shop for $733. Summit wanted $795 for an Eagle. The shop said they can use Callies as it comes and almost always has to touch up the Eagle.

    Didn't mean any hostility at all. Just letting anyone reading this, you too can be a parts manufature with just one phone call. The total number of factories in China banging this stuff out can probably be counted on one hand.
