I got a responce and i urge all of you who have wondered about these heads to send a email aswell.

  2. Having never written to MMFF, that response looks prefabricated.
  3. lol it may have been. so i sent one to 5.0 and super fords aswell.
  4. I'm with ya bro... Here's what I sent:

  5. That would be awesome if they did that, good call :nice:
  6. I had to give props... :D

  7. Believe me, sent them enough messages and such to know that you havent gotten anywhere. I have been back and forth with them on some things for email after email, only to have my suggestions sent to the wayside. Im not putting it down, as I love the mags, Im just sure they have tons of ideas for articles already.
  8. I'm sure that they do as well but what I think might prevent the idea from going forward, is that it bites the hand that feeds. IMO, there should be a budget section complete with article, each and every month.
  9. ok, i have some imput here.

    The reason that these guys arent gonna do this shootout anytime soon is because of the fact that companies like Edelbrock, AFR, TFS, Brodix and others advertise in their magazines. So if you were the head of one of those companies, and saw a shootout of japanese heads performing as well... or perhaps better than the heads you represent, you might pull your multi-million dollar ads! Plus, alot of times, even if the knockoff heads did well, they might "fabricate" the numbers down a bit, to ensure that the more expensive heads finish on top.

    wow, my journalism eduacation is actully paing off :D
  10. want me to walk over and talk to them? i live down the block from thier office, and have them on speed dial...
  11. 86bluecobra, pure genius :nice: Lets hope!
  12. ^ Very good point :nice:
  13. yes tell them STANGNET sent you.
  14. Yes i figured asmuch when i was writing the emal but i figure so many peeps want to know and if these guys get enough emails about the same thing from subscribers then maybe they would do it.
  15. thx i should add your quote to my sig not very often i have been accused of being that. lol
  16. MM&FF seems to have the best handle on the hobby.

    Campisano has responded to several of my emails. I just can't seem to find him at the Spring Break Shootout party so far though!
  17. May the Shortz be with you :flag:
  18. i agree any info on how it went would be nice.
  19. Asshat... isn't that what I just said? :p
