    i do belive the pass side id bent a lil bit. but not as bad as the pics lead you to belive.

    for one the pass side cuttin edge is almost gone causing it to sit a lil lopsided.
    to angle of me and my pic taking abilities..

    but for 10 grand total i think i got a pretty good deal

    For 10K you got a great deal. Have fun. the wing could be the reason the cutting edge is worn on that side more. a new wing is only like 500.00 but you should be proud of the deal you got !

    Your a-frame must be completely out of level for the edge to wear like that.

    Park on level ground and see how out of level it is. If you can adjust it to be level, you'll get much better scraping and longer life from that edge....

    i grew up in a small rual(sp) living on 100+ acres but have workedin indy since i was 18, so when i met my wife shes from indy. it just seemed natural to live here in indy. and since she was just graduating from college she didnt havea job lined up so we agreed to rent an apartment for a year. so we could find out where she would be working and find something close to her. since i a operator i travel with my job. so one of us should be close to work.

    but let me repeat i hate this place i hate having neighbors. i hate the fact that i cant walk out side take a piss at 4 am in the morring with out getting the cops called. i hate the fact that i cant leave a damn thing in my truck with out fear of some one stealing it.

    going by the numbers they claim 15.xx from kn. typicla gains on tuning is 30-40 hp so i may have mis spooke any where from 45-55 hp total.. my bad..

    i doubt i get that much but hey its all good. maybe next ill grab a set of underdrive pulleys or possibly a nice set of roller rockers.. those are good hp adders
