    The issue doesn't seem to be that you got screwed, it seems to be that you a using the VTCoA to run your mouth about a respected member. You weren't happy with the parts he sold you, so he promptly gave you your money back. What makes you think you got screwed?

    Ironhead is GTG. He even offered me first dibs on his Strikers (right James? :D). I don't have a block for sale, but if I did I sure wouldn't sell it to you.

    At some point picking on Dan has to stop. Poor guy probably doesn't have much self esteem left after trading his '10 for a vintage rice grinder. :D

    Yea I was lied to about the condition of the parts and yea because of that I drove nearly 280 miles in my 10, wasting 25 gallons gas and 5 hours of time. Caveman, say that wouldn't chap your ass and I'll call you a liar too. Some people can't handle the truth.....I'd rather be disliked for being honest than liked for being less than honest.

    The milage in your truck is a-typical. You should get a tuner. I average 15-16 in mine as a daily driver. Road trips average 18.

    I would have been pissed if I drove all that way and the parts were not as advertised. But, I would have to blame myself for the return trip if I didn't realize things were not up to par until I got home.

    Ironhead didn't try to rip you off. In fact, $1600 is cheap for a block and crank that he feels is useable. I understand that your opinion of the quality/usability of the parts differs from his. However, that's not his fault. And the fact that he gave you all your money back when you realized the parts were not what you wanted shows it was nothing more than a miss-understanding and that James is a stand up guy.

    I have no dog in this fight. I've never met James, nor bought anything from him. I'm merely stating the facts from a readers perspective. It would probably be prudent of you to realize that before more readers see this thread and draw the same conclusions I have.

    I blame myself... for not noticing the duct tape that covered the damage on the crank nose of the crank. I'm over it... but as long as you want to grind on it I'm going to reply. You dig Caveman?:D

    You just can't help yourself. You should change your handle to Jughead.

    Yea well I wasn't speeding and we didn't pitch/pass the block and crank across the interstate median at 75 mph either when we met. I also stop when I need to piss.:D

    And you have done such a good job of showing what a d!ck you are by insulting many long time members here that you should change yours to d!ckhead or Richard Cranium
