Re: 243 LS SSR...Stumped.

Re: 243 LS SSR...Stumped.

They will flow all the way to 1.000.. But the SSR is touchy.

Re: Future of head porting

Perfect thread for what is wrong with America.

LIVE and LET LIVE.

Way too hard for some.

Re: Future of head porting

After keeping up with this thread, I've come to a conclusion.

Find another profession.

The old school way can't possibly work.

Any you haven't got enough money to buy what you need to be successful.

Become a doctor.

Re: Future of head porting

Here is what I know, aside all the normal life expenses. Mortgage, electric, etc. I pay $1896 a month for BCBS for health insurance. If I can pay all my bills, and put money in savings, it's a successful small business, no matter what criteria you post. PS, a year at Kansas University is $26,000. J...

Re: Future of head porting

What I'm reading is to be successful, the person must have people doing all the work for them. PS. Aerospace work, HTC is in Ohio. Right, labor will continue to be automated and moved offshore to low cost resources. It is a big mistake for a young person to choose a career that involves labor that ...

Re: Future of head porting

OK, you say so.... PS, the brown truck delivers anywhere. If you are good, location means nothing. We are talking self employed, your confusing Edelbrock with small business. The distinction I make between business and self employment, is that a good business does not require your work. A business ...

Re: Future of head porting

Most small businesses are founded in a similar pattern. A skilled technician works for a larger company for a number of years. For any one of a number of reasons, he finds himself out of work and finds difficulty finding a job that uses his skills. He decides to open his own home shop and go into b...

Re: Future of head porting

One more thing I will add. I have 7-8 really good engine builders I service. From SBC, BBC, LS.. When they sell a engine, I sell a head.

In the beginning I did lots of free work. Work to prove what we could do. Now those guys trust me, I trust them.

That is the key to sucess IMO.
