They have their place and that is all I'm gonna say.

This is probably gonna be a nail biter so,
I think I'll get my popcorn and sitback to take it all in.

Please... go easy guys. This poster obviously doesn't know the history here.

Procomps are ok if you want to replace D3s with aluminum. You'll spend money on them, just like D3s, if you want them to perform well.

Out of the box, they are not better than a "professionally" lightly ported D0VE-C head.

1969,

I don't think he's a street racer, LOL.

Sorry jstang, just a joke going around on the forum.

I'd hoped to end it in the first post and do you a favor but apparently Pandora's box has been opened the topic was worse than I first surmised.
