i do not know what is so hard to believe...this is High HP racing... CHIT breaks...After all its Just metal anyway you spread it.....thats just part of it......before i could be dis-mayed i would have to know just how many failures these heads have had in this particular area.....otherwise its nothing unusal to see stuff break and come apart.....

My opinion

More like a ProComp casting.

ok so CFE/BMF and procomp are the same? so by pointing this out you are saying the CFE and BMF and Canfiels are the same as procomp? p.s. you should save up and paint that thing in your avatar........ :lol:
Also why do you concern yourself with other peoples cars when you dont even have one yourself?

Pow, bang, boom gotta love a litttl erock throwing once in a while.

CFE/BMF have had quite a few problems over the last couple of years. There are stories of brand new heads failing on start up due to thin casting areas,

Bottom line, no guarantee with racing parts, chit is going to break sometime or another, If it has not happened to you, consider yourself lucky.
