    Today was like Christmas in June for me. I came home with a big package on the front doorstep. I looked on the shipping label, and sure enough, it was from Trick Flow. Now a lot of people say that their CNC work is like jewelry, which I will say they are very nice. Since my wife was not home yet, I just opened up the boxes in the living room. She came home soon afterwards and just shook her head. At some point during the following conversation she asked if that is what she is getting for our 20 year anniversary next month? I wanted to tell her it was like jewelry, but somehow, I'm sure not she would understand. Oh well, I snapped a picture off before putting them back in the boxes since I figured someone here would enjoy them. :D

            Oh you haven’t met my Black female cat, she’s very high maintenance. She talks back all the time and sticks out her tongue.

              The wife's real statement was: "You put that JUNK on my clean floor?!?"

                  Married and never got that.
                  In fact, it is normally an eye popping looking followed by “Coooool, Whatcha got there?!”

                            Well, you don’t have a motor head for a wife then. She is getting ready to order up some trick flow heads for her Cuda, on her dime, not mine.

                                Those will look great hanging from your wife's ear lobes!
                                She does have pierced ears, doesn't she?

                                  In all fairness, my wife is supportive of the car. She does not know what any of the engine parts are, but likes anything that gets the car closer to being driven. Now, as far as a cat, we already have one. He does like when we bring new packages in the house mostly because he wants to play in the boxes.

                                    I'm at work now right now, but I can get the good camera out tonight and take a few pictures. Dang, now I have to take one out of the box again and at look them again. :lol:

                                          At the request of @oldkimmer , I took a few pictures. These are the small block heads for the record. Also, a gratuitous picture of the cat who found his way into the box while I took pictures of the other head.

                                            Almost forgot one of the intake side, might as well throw in another cat picture too.

                                                I'm taking it that you have the CNC 190 cc versions? I would guess that good castings, and good CNC work look great no matter who the manufacture is. I don't want to turn this into a Trick Flow veses Speedmaster tread, goodness knows we have enough of those. :lol:
