Respectfully,Bob



Just think how far Indy could have gone if they treated their dealers and customers better. GREAT products but not so good service or quality control but I'm sure glad to have their products available. Where would we be without them???

I've always lusted for a set of -1s for a big block. They have engineered an amazing array of great parts. I just wish they could re engineer their attitudes.

Yep that's the bad part. I love my 440-1's and they will go back on a build one of these days. I have them flowing pretty good and will be upgrading them to a 2.225 valve when I get a chance to do some more porting on them but for now this engine will have B1 heads.

Latest rumor is that Indy's tooling is worn out and needs retooled to meet tolarences on machined blocks and heads.



/\/\/\

This is the sad part if true. If no one steps in and buys it and retools anything then will the current owners step up to retool the molds? I doubt it shruggy

Soo, about the tooling. I JUST purchased (2) Indy Maxx blocks in June. One a 4.500 Hemi, one a 4.375 wedge. 6 week delivery time, each had custom features, and they are dead nuts on. We now have 3 Indy blocks, and they are all I could ask for. Plus they are @ 1000$ less than the theoretical KB blocks. I also have an old KB water block that is a PITA. It leaks around the wet sleeves. It has nowhere near the meat that the Indy blocks have.

So I think if you want a block that works, call Todd, he gets the joy of dealing with them, and you get a block that works!

RIP

As stated we been an Indy WD since 1998 and build our engine programs based on Indy products exclusively.Whe have been one of Indy's strongest supporters /customers for all those years.With that being said,has everything we purchased spot on,no we have seen our share of issues with heads,blocks and other parts.What we can say is that Russ and the people at Indy have worked to resolve any issue that did come up.BGR under AJ still maintains a great working relationship with Indy and continues using their products.
Our post delt with "rumors" and "speculations" with hopes the truth would emerge and satisfy everyone questions.All due respect to Todd,he also supports KB even after all the concerns and money other people have delt with.I still stick with Indy for all their products.If you doubt any of my statements go back to the archives and read all our past posts,here on Moparts as well as many other sites.
Respectfully Bob

Bob, you more than anyone should be able to address these "rumors" since you have close to 20 years of hands on knowledge. With 3 blocks, I'm not in the same position. I DON'T think it is helpful spreading "rumors". They can only damage if inaccurate. Rumors are easy to start, impossible to erase once started. I personally don't appreciate being on the receiving end, and I don't think many others do either.

Returned respect,

RIP

Somebody that has been happy to work with them for 20 years spreads a rumor they should themselves be able to verify or shoot down? Say what?

That's some way to pay them back for decades of service to your biz. I for one hadn't heard this rumor until that post.

Eu Tu, Brute?


Forever in debt to your priceless advice...
