Heres the article!!!
Malik built a big-block Ford, however, he isn't brand-loyal. Randy explains, "I thought a big-block Chrysler would be the best, but I had all of these parts, so a Chrysler would have cost me three times as much. The big-block I ran in 2003 is this engine. I put a crank and rods and a roller cam in it, otherwise, it's basically the same engine. As far as trick parts, I wanted to mention the cam drive made by Scott Main, of MPG Heads. It lets me change the cam timing in the cell in seven minutes." A mysterious cooling problem caused overheating when the engine met the dyno, leading to a DNF.
Well Mr. "Onetime," I can't help but notice that you registered on the forum today
and then posted this as your very first post, and
declined to show your email for correspondence...maybe because the email address might reveal who you really are and the name you normally post under
? Judging by the fact that you claim you originated from the Network54 385 forum, me thinks you've already been around here plenty but
are a wuss who is afraid to reveal your true identity when asking questions that are aimed to tarnish another's credibility.
Am I right? If so, I sure as hell don't care to see you around here anymore.
if Mr. Malik likes Mopars or has no brand loyalty? These engines...they're all air pumps,
pure and simple. And one motor may very well be better for a given application than the other brand motor. Would you enter a blown International 345 against Force in the 1320 OR would you expect his motor to beat your 345 in a rock crawling contest? I grew up Mopars, my good friend and neighbor restored '60's Mustangs and I scoffed at him
. Then I took a 460 apart and fell in love. I even tell people that I am not necessarily a Ford guy; I'm a 429/460 guy.
This wonderful 460 engine, beautiful as it is, is not the motor to end all motors. No engine is.
We are all different in this country and we pick and choose what we like. That's one of the great things about America...freedom of choice.
Mr. Malik's motor melted its pistons, and seemingly not his doing (which your mag quote calls a "mysterious" cooling problem!). His loss. We helped compensate him for his loss. PERIOD. I could care less whether he spent the money on new Ford pistons or new Volkswagen pistons. That's up to him.
Look Mr. "Onetime," if in fact you're the kind of person that cruises the internet just to pounce on others so as to make your inferiority complex self somehow feel better all the while hiding behind a second registered "onetime" name, then as far as I'm concerned you can just get the hell outta here!
p.s.: Chilly, trace the IP address and BOOT HIM!
