I see "they" really like the cosmo intake, definetly different than the usual jay-tech\RB holley style manifold!

BTW - They don't care about covering the engines anymore?

The sound of the Puerto Rican motors are different to the others... But! Who the hell can they dyno so fast and then take it out on the dragstrip and go so fast?? Is it really all in the tuning?

Thanks. I wasn't trying to start trouble, just wanted to varify it before I purchased a block from them.

He looks like he's 20 something years old. It's pretty funny how many great tuners are really young, another example is that guy Darin Darichiara who tunes the Titan cars....

Gaby chassis and Gaby Skern are two totally different people. The one in the pic with all the hot tail is the chassis builder.
