I think they are like 1200. So 20% off is like 960 plus tax. Still steep. I’d go competitive if I was looking for something on par with OEM. I have hard good things about c57 (Chris steenbock I think is his name) but I have no personal experience.
Best is somewhat subjective as you have to weigh up front cost vs long term reliability. I have multiple Competitive crankshafts (Jeff seebold built with oem webs, ADR rods, and japanese bearings). They are around 650. I also have an SBT in a JetManiac 718 that’s been going for nearly 10...
Impressed you got some media attention. Good work.
Wish there was enough monetary support to bring legal action (or threat thereof) because that or some good old boys connections are probably the only solution.
You can’t just mount up a 94-2020 midshaft assembly to a 90-93 squarenose hull. The whole housing is larger (on the later model) so only 2 of the 3 inserts would align for the bolts. I highly doubt they put in a new insert in the bulkhead.
