What's sad is the American made stuff is poorer quality than most of the overseas crap.

AFR and Dart make some nice heads. But as far as carbs go they suck.

Yep, their stuff has a ton of room for improvement. All they care about is profit margins.

I like Edelbrock. I have their heads and intake on my 428. Not a fan of their carbs though. Boo on AFB Carters..


I also bought some new Dickies shoes yesterday. A Legend In Work... In China. Sounds like a new fortune cookie game.

Name one company that isnt heavily profit driven. The number ONE reason for moving product manafactuering to CHINA is PROFITS!

Pay some guy $2 a day vs $15 an hour = MASSIVE profit gains with minimal loss in quality workmanship.

And that my friend, is the downfall of our country.

To add to that, the #1 reason for starting a business is PROFIT.

Unless you are an idiot like me that will often do side painting side work for friends and stuff for free. Then again, thats not really a business.
