    I do not like to complain but a troll with the handle of "Impala" has been abusing myself and another guy although both us us have done nothing but give him good advice. I normally try to avoid trolls (sometimes it is hard) and have done so after "Impala" became abusive, but he persists in ridiculing the other guy. I have found Team Chevelle to be a friendly site, but posters like Impala are of no benefit to the community. The subject of the post was Speed Pro piston coatings.

    Thank you.

    Well, my friend, it has come time to leave this site, and the Camaro one as well. Seems I am getting hammered by the elite here over the only accurate way to set valves, and they insist on going back to the "he was banned before" **** and bull.

    I have never seen people more intent on insisting on doing it completely and totally wrong. I have other stuff to do, and not waste my time here.

    Take care,

    What I mean Tom is, as a new user when I goto the main Forums page, the Engine forums says there are "38,587" threads in this forum. Yet when I click on this forum, it only shows 12 threads... I would expect to see some sort of links at the bottom allowing me to goto the next page etc, but theres nothing. I'm only allowed to view 12 topics in any given forum at once?

    I'd post screenshots, but I'm unable to here.

    I'm confused with the forums. The engine forum says it has over 30k threads, yet when I click on it I can only see about 10?

    HI Tom5

    I need some input on a imca stockcar circle track engine i'm building. Trying to decide which mellings select oil pump is right for my application. 355 with solid cam, edm lifters, full roller rockers, PAC 1201x springs... 7400 rpm max. I have some serious money in the heads so want to get it right... I bought a 10555C but wondering if I should rethink that.

    Hi Tom. I just read a post of yours in regards to steering box's. You mentioned VR in your original 70 box. If you don't mind, could you explain that to me, and if anyway let me know how I can do that to mine?

    Tom, sorry I dragged you into the mess in that thread, hopefully I'll do better reading of a thread before I post, but maybe not, Thanks for helping folks out.

    Hey Tom, thanks for the reply on the brake question. I did I not bench bleed the master. Will that defeat the power boost? The pedal is not spongy. It just doesn't have any stopping power. I can stop the car but I can't lock up the wheels.
