Pro Stock Engineering

Anyone remember Pro stock Engineering ? They did some build ups of Ford engines in the 70's in Hot Rod magazine. I think the guy who ran the place was Paul Bedoian. I found an old article from 07 on a paul Bedoian but I'm not sure it's the same guy. Sure looks like him though. Anybody have any info ?

I remember him. I used one of his cams once in a 390 LTD I was working on. He was into FE stuff - he had a 2 piece intake that brought the mating surface outside the valve cover so you wouldn't have to pull the covers and the rockers to do a manifold swap.

668. The neighbour of the beast.

I remember the two-peice FE intake and the air-cups (instead of valve-springs). Paul's stuff was cool but way expensive.

I still have one of his old catalogs from way back selling the valve spring "air cup" system in it.

The few times I called him when I was running Cleveland stuff he always claimed that the reason a lot of his stuff looked just like Moroso's parts (and other companys ) is because he made ALL his parts/components in house and sold some to other companys.
