    Hey sorry guys, we dont have much margin on headers or exhaust so I cant discount them at all. A lot of the other little stuff we didnt discount either because we're low on stock on some of it or once again not enough of a margin to put them on sale. Hope everyone understands. I talked to them about maybe doing a New Years sale, but I'm doubtful about that happening.

    Understandable. I'd rather see low pricing every day instead of high prices all year and one "good" sale price once a year like some places do.

    Low margins are bad for you but great for us

    I thinking about a Timing Cover...if any are left...but I am curious...

    Mike, you posted several months ago you thought there was an updated version of the timing cover in the works to optimize the new HP water pump. What's the latest word on that...is it going to happen any time soon. If not, I need to go ahead and snag one of these while they're on sale.

    Thanks.

    We have em. I'm not sure if we've sold all the stock of the older version yet but if you call just be sure to mention that you want the new version.

    Thanks for making some items available with some savings!

    Likely buying a Nailhead roller cam and lifters tomorrow (discounted to $500). Any additional discount if i add a set of nailhead roller rockers to the package? (those are $998, ouch!)

    Mike, I already have an NOS Isky roller cam that I have been itching to use. Do you have a separate deal for just the roller lifters? Thanks, Dan

    Hi Michael, I'll talk to you in the spring about the 425 roller cam setup. I have a buncha stuff to do first; then I want to talk with Tom Telesco about it. But I really want a good roller cam.

    We occasionally have a sale during the middle of the year sometime so that would be the next sale that we'd have.

    Already got an engine rebuild using TA parts, then TA shorty headers and TA 2.5 exhaust last year. Now all I need to finish things off is a set of those red Kenne Bell valve covers - it's probably not too hot in the warehouse to take a look if you can find the time.

    The problem is, is that the holes in the valve covers done line up with the holes on a head, they're drilled wrong. Not to say we cant lengthen them so that they work, that's just extra time (and $) that has to be put into them. If you would really like a set, we can probably remachine them for an extra cost so they'll bolt up nice.
