As they say "every story has at least two sides" and obviously those who have laid down their money have every right to voice their opinions. That said, I believe there is a lot of good engineering behind Bruce's opinions and a lot of good common sense as well. Not having sent any money his way I cannot comment on his business practices.

Just sending out BEST WISHES to everyone for the week and the new year again, I'm finally starting to write 2011 on checks. What happened to 1974? It was here a minute ago.

Hey P-man, does Torque really win all the races? I thought it would have been a tie!  Grin

I too have been badly burned by Bruce's complete BS.
He is basically a liar. He sold me an engine with the fake dyno sheet as well, and it vibrated so bad I could not use it. Took it apart, and all the NEW parts I paid for were old and junk.
After realizing he was indeed a fraud, I gave up, threw away all the worthless junk, and had a real engine built.
There is also a website out there with a similar experience.
DO NOT USE FULPER UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES!
He says everyone else is wrong, thinks he is smarter than the real Pontiac engineers, says the Butler guys are just 'stupid salesmen' and always has a sob story about his accident which he uses as an excuse to delay deliveries by many months.
His health is fine. The accident was 5 years+ ago. I went to his shop. I expected to see an invalid based on all the BS he had said. He is healthier than most.
I have saved many a prospective buyer from going down the same road and losing $12K+ like I did. He is nowhere near a real expert or ethical business person.

That Car Craft article was all right, but it seemed like there should have been a part two detailing the top end and cam combo. I tried but couldn't find a link to it, just the bottom end details and a mention of E-heads.

Yep, never seen any others pull that kind of power out of a 350P.
But ya they could have gave more details but think they used ported eddy heads and custom grind cam.

I reseached Fulper for hours and read many posts and articles of endless complaints.
I went to his site and saw for myself what I thought, might constitute a pro engine building shop,,, I simply shook my head, from what I saw on Utube.
I posted my thoughts on this forum and agreed with our Administrator,,, Bruce is Bruce, in plain English.
Write off your loss as a lesson learned,,, and welcome to the forum "O"
