Round 2 with Whiteline ALK...Either they have some serious QC issues or I'm getting jetted around...

Crappy pics, as always. I can't afford a camera, I have too many car parts to buy...

I'm going to stick with Whiteline, for now...they've already sent me a replacement and they took pics of it, before shipping :)

Also, this showed up and I dun dis...where is your God, now??





Painted it black, along with the rest of the front end (hubs/brackets/control arm/steering brackets/sway bar/end links)...blackout all the things. Didn't feel like dropping the subframe (also, isn't rusting anywhere).

Heads are decked. Doing a quick lapping and I'll reassemble. I've decided I'm going to get this engine back together, pretty much as-is, then (down the road--hopefully I can get a couple years out of it) build a new one from new parts (w/lessons learned).

In which case would you need to cut the mating surface? New valves? Chipped?
No, just making sure they are all seated well. I had the valve stems trimmed so I would have more options with buckets, and didn't note which port each valve came from... So, I had to "start over."

After assuring me parts were good, No Limit Motorsports sent me these to replace the replacement.

WTF?? Beat to shit...









Am I to assume this is what Whiteline sells??

That's totally unacceptable from No Limit and Whiteline...trailing arms look good to say the least Do you think No Limit actually checked them?
They sent me a pic but it was hard to see anything, so they looked okay. Sucks because I've spent a ton of money with them (crank, rods, pistons, valves, cams, etc...).
