    Ken any idea when the catalog will be ready? Would it be possible to update what’s available for the 350? In the process of starting a build.

    Our biggest problem are foundries we are looking at foreign markets to cast parts then machine them here. Talking to importers is interesting. Racers think the parts they are buying are cast here. Not necessarily so. You do have to go with there hi tech or aerospace shops to get same quality as USA. Still looking here !

    Well I would steer far away from whoever cast the parts for Proform,Procomp and all that Professional Products garbage.

    Did you reach out to the Pontiac guys to see who does their casting work ?

    Tom I have spoken to the Pontiac folks in NH about many things lately. Working on a few of those leads.

    Yes Ben on both points. Ken is checking on things on his end and I am checking on many companies also.
    I will be checking on another company in the Indianapolis area this week.
    Remember that Ken's company/personal goal is to sell his parts as cost effective as possible while still selling an awesome part/parts to the Sportsman racer. We could have cast parts soon but not at some of the prices he has been quoted.
    We want our Buick Community to excel and dominate at the track that is why Ken has gone all in financially on his own dime.

    Well I for one am glad to hear that KBR is still pursuing and moving toward the goal stated above by John E.

    Keep on persevering and press on to the goal!! The hurdles and obstacles you guys face today will make tomorrow’s reward that much sweeter!
