I got so excited about the drive, that I drove down yesterday. Got off 5 before the Grapevine, and drove over 33 to Ojai. Nice road! Then down Highway 1 to Malibu where I hit Latigo Canyon and some other twisty roads. So fun! Anyways, see you guys at 2pm.

Here's a view from inside the Edelbrock test car. Thanks for setting up the excellent tour, Neal! https://theta360.com/s/s7wUdICMp79kAFrxTS7aGLbIu

Thanks Neal for extending the invite to us forum members. It was a very informative tour and the Edelbrock facility is impressive. I was surprised to see how much touch labour is involved in all their products and the multiple QC checks. Thanks also to the Edelbrock guys for their time.

Wow! What a place. Impressive does not do it justice. And the ride in their demo E-Force FRS made a believer out of me. Thanks again Neal for inviting me.

Happy to do it guys! Thanks to everybody that came out! It really was an impressive tour.

I was up for 22 hours yesterday, but it was all definitely worth it!

Here are some pics from my phone before I ran out of space. Hopefully @TofuJoe will post up some of his because mine are terrible!







































Afterwards @BigFatFlip, @Lunatic and I went out for some Korean BBQ!

Here's one of my favorite shots. As old as you can get sitting next to as new as you can get.

But seriously, I also had to shake the man's hand and thank him personally. Edelbrock is taking a huge leap of faith developing this kit. They're name isn't usually associated with imports (their last foray with the Honda turbo kits didn't go as well as they wanted) but they are trying to tap into the next generation of "hot rodder" to solidify their future as a company.

whoa, that is trippy.... I know very little about the Edelbrock SC ... do they all come with lighting like that, or is that one for show?
