Sorry 'bout your luck. There's some unplanned expense and downtime.  Mad  I think the waterbox claims more engines and driveshafts than the racetrack. Here's hoping you can save most of it. Be sure to let us know the cause if you can. Suspect

the Callis stuff is (so I'm told) Japan made. they take more pride in there metals. But they want $1900 per crank (short snout). The Lunati is the best of the China made metals and would be a great lower budget price $789 from JEGS. long snout. i guess midway is the scat stuff

We were going to ship my brothers motor, since we have 2 I think driving will be cheaper.
