The other thing that seemed to get lost because of all the bs out there is most guys did not understand there were 2 diffrent companys/supplyers for these heads in cali for a while as there was some type of business split up by diffrent groups at arao, The Dominion company came after Arao, not before as some think.
So now theres only arao out there which I would be Very carefull/leary dealing with (escrow account only) as im sure you have seen all the bs about him out there. I have tryed to contact that kevin gal guy all over the forums he spamed to try and offer help and find out what was going on but he never did reply to any of my many emails/pm's so something is fishy with that guy. I called arao to find out whats up and he told me yes he had componet/time problems with his "one off" custom heads but he did ship them and he got them so that whole arao thing seems really screwy. I think the best/only way to deal with arao is if you where close enough to drive there regularly to see whats up. He did say he got his parts supply (rocker?) problems sorted out and I noticed he lowered his prices back down on the ford heads.I like the avenger hemi heads but that price if correct is really up there, that other hemi one is really neat too. Myself though I am more interested in the multi valve pushrod stuff.
