Well at least some of the import owners do more than attach a fart can, put a double stack wing on, and claim 12s, lol!You'd be surprised, there's a little bit of that even with this stuff. If I got a Subaru coming in from a certain shop, I already know it's getting Manley rods and pistons. If it's from another shop that does them, I know it's getting JE pistons and Manley rods. These guys like to find parts that work for the right price and sell them as packaged motors.
The Evo guys love Wiseco pistons on Eagle rods, it's a pretty good combo that can survive a decent amount of power.
+1,000,000,000,000 lol. I saw an Acura today that had "dual exhaust" that was just Y'd halfway back and had TWO fart cans stickin out back. I tried to get a picture but it was a busy day at the gas station and that would have caused a riot...Well at least some of the import owners do more than attach a fart can, put a double stack wing on, and claim 12s, lol!
