Hi, it's John Pfaff here. Normally I don't post on this forum, but because of a certain post I'm going to make this one exception. I'd like to set the record straight. i first met Anthony when he contacted me about a shortblock I had for sale. I'd like to describe the shortblock in detail. It was a seasond 109 complete with a std/std crank with standard rods, Wiseco forged pistons, Revolution X series 210/215 roller cam, Program steel main caps and ARP everything. The price was agreed upon and purchased "as is". And the following was added for free: New timing cover and a new double roller timing chain at my cost. You asked me where to go to finish the long block, and I suggested Nash Engines and you dropped it off there. In addition I supplied you with all the gaskets required to finish the assembly at below cost. The engine was delivered to Dan at National Racing and you agreed to have Dan do the re and re of the engine at an agreed price. The engine was fired up with no issues. You picked up the car and no one heard from you again until I heard from you one Sunday afternoon. You explained to me there was a noise in the engine and you asked me if I knew what it was. After asking you several questions, one of which was when it started to make noise I asked what were you doing. Your reply was that you were driving down the highway at 15 pounds of boost with the alky on and it startred to make noise. At the time I thought it was odd that you would be running alcohol with 15 pounds of boost. You asked me what you should do, and I suggested that you talk to Martin and perhaps have him look at it. You then asked me if Martin would cover this. My experience with performance engines is that there is no warranty, but I can't comment on any arrangement you had with the engine builder. Further, you purchased the engine from me "as is" and the builder only installed the top end. At this point the engine was picked up by Dan and reinstalled in the car. All along the people involved have done nothing but try and help you with anything from free parts to sound advice. Given the fact that you're running a 70mm turbo with a stock elbow/puck and an unported wastegate hole was a recipe for runaway boost. Anthony, you seem like a nice young man but I honestly think you need to take some responsibility here. Given the fact that you're an inexperienced Turbo Regal owner, you may not have been aware that the engine was detonating. Be the nice guy that I still think you are and please pay the outstanding bill that you have with Nash Engines because Martin did nothing but try and help you at his cost. I hope you take this in the spirit that it's written. You can still call me anytime you want and I'll be happy to help in any way that I can.
