Haven't anything done by him, but I'm impressed with what he did with Drity Birds heads. Don't know if that helps.

1200.00 to get 400 CFM. That's a dam good price. You could make 1000 hp with that. Moving push is allot of work so understandable.

There's 3 other really good guys out there I'd highly recommend also....in no particular order. Dan Barton, John Marcella and Gaby. They all have proven track records with High Ports. All have produced 1000-1200 + hp

yea I talked to marcella today great guy he was more expensive but I know what I'm getting I've seen his work. I just figured I would ask about wilcox because that was a great deal just curious on why so cheap (not that I'm complaining) but I didn't want to get into one of those you get what you pay for things

I hear you, it's like you just don't know. John's a great guy, very easy to talk to.
