I didn't know they started back up. I wonder who owns them this time.

Tried a crankshaft and some H-Beam rods back in early 2001 and they were JUNK. This is all Chinese stuff and the ethics of the people back then was a big F"in problem. "Cavet Emptor!" ! [-X

have a high flow cat aluminum water pump on my Camino...bought it at Pomona swap meet from a dealer for $60...as a joke. Figured if it got the car running and it failed no big deal. Never had an issue with it. Same with their 4340 crank & rods. Maybe I got lucky?

Dear lord, they're like the crazed half dead villain in B horror movies. You think it's dead, and it keeps coming back to life.

I bought a Mopar flywheel from them and the holes were drilled in the wrong places...

Probably the same forging place as all the alibaba sellers, scat, eagle, etc.

My hangups with the chinese stuff is the QC is usually nonexistent.

I hate to say it, but the forgings themselves usually aren't the problem . . . it's the knockoff ARP bolts they use and the machining which leads to failures.
