    Now...

    Seems I won the intake I bid on last week to replace the one that WAS missing. Anyone in the need for an Edelbrock Victor Ram II R - standard deck height? I'll take my own pics once it arrives here and post em up. One more thing tacked onto the expense of all this...

    Out of the blue- the intake shows up today.

    No call, no note. No text and guess what. No return 250.00 check for the polishing that ...

    DID NOT HAPPEN.

    The intake was not sanded, buffed, polished. Absolutely nothing done to it. So much for "I'm 85% done with it - I'll send it out on Friday...".

    Johnny. I hope you used that money for some good. I hope you needed it worse than I, or my family. It's yours. If you feel you deserve it that much.

    Karma folks.

    What goes around, comes around.

    Multiple texts, calls, conversations. No intake. Promises.

    Ordering a new intake and moving on. It's the hold-up and I need one.

    C'est La Vie!

    Maybe I will attempt to polish it myself again next year. Whole lot cheaper.
    I started on my first tunnel ram and gave up and used some bondo, primed, sanded and painted it. I'll let you know how long it takes me but in the polishers defense polishing cast aluminum parts is time consuming. Good luck I hope you get it back pretty soon.

    Thanks, I've already talked with the shop and he said to call ahead and he'd mill them while I wait. The other shop is sizing the guides (if needed), backcutting the valves and flowing them. It's a specialty shop so I don't think he'll be abusive. I'm assembling them so thats on me. I wanted the majority of them polished out thinking it would save time doing a quick buff and final cleaning before assembly. I may be wrong but that was my plan.
