Yeah you're racing but you shouldn't not have had to go through all that time money and heartache to get to that point

I would imagine those Associated with the CV-1 Product are trying to stop the bleeding. The most controversial head in Pontiac history. So easy to throw customers under the bus, you didn’t run my carb, you didn’t run my rocker shaft. You got the wrong intake.

No doubt we’ve lost more Pontiac guys because of the CV-1 controversy/issues then any other Pontiac product. It’s a shame head that was supposed to be greatest thing since sliced bread.

Everyone knows story behind your heads. As you well know It’s the people that’s associated with the CV-1. My signature says it all. When there’s issues it’s always your fault. It’s a shame that honest hard-working people Get taken.

You can correct me if I’m wrong, ( might have the wrong guy ) but didn’t you have issues from day one when Calvin initially did the heads, seems I remember something about the valve guides not lineing up with valve seats, and Calvin fixed it for nothing.
