I did. He had issues with water leakage, and he just epoxied the thing together.

It have a set of LS heads. I might do some measuring just for fun.

Ok. Yeah I understand all that. My opinion is that its all metal. Im not brand loyal at all. If its a good piece of engineering, then its a good piece. Dont care where it came from.
