10seclx the problem that I had with what you said was that you misrepresented yourself. You claimed that you did something, when in fact it was someone else, and this is dishonest.
You say that it would be difficult to explain the situation? How about something like this:
"Dal Sangha ran 160's with accel, he put 1543 rwhp with a 347, high ports, mondo, and 101mm turbonetics turbo. He was running those things around 76% duty cycle."
There...was that hard??? This would help out the person who asked the question, without you misrepresenting yourself as someone else.
Why would you feel the need to explain your situation...that you now own the parts??? Does this matter to the persons original question? NO. It's great that you have the "info from someone that has gone 7's with the setup". So add that info, which would help the original poster, without misrepresenting yourself. It was MUCH more than you just wording your sentence wrong; you intentionally tried to make clear the fact that YOU were the one that accomplished these things. Look at how much you use the word "I" and "my", to leave little doubt that it was you who did these things.
I think that you are trying to ride on someone's coattails and boast about the parts that you have (as you have also done on some posts on Stangnet). Otherwise the fact that you own the parts wouldnt be applicable to the original question, and shouldn't even need to come up.
Another problem that I have about you misrepresenting yourself, is that Dal is a very great guy to talk to, but also very proud of his accomplishments (7's is no easy feat). Someone else claiming that THEY did this, seems to override or negate what Dal worked so hard to accomplish. I have seen Dals' car several times in person, and can appreciate the time, money, patience, dedication and hard work that goes into running a 7 second, 1543 horsepower car. After all of this enormous effort, I dont think that he would appreciate someone else trying to claim that it was THEM that did these things. Coming into possession of SOME of the parts AFTER THE FACT does not mean that you accomplished this!
I talked to the people at Headless Horsemen Racing who told me that they own the heads, trans, fast system, and Mondo cooler (and I even saw the pics that they posted to verify this!). I was also told that you now own just the shortblock and rearend.
I am in NO WAY jealous because you bought a couple of parts off of his car...I am mad because you are claiming the accomplishments and achievments of one of the people that I look up to the most in the world of mustang drag racing. And you had no part at all in these accomplishments and achievments. It's alright to be proud of what someone achieves, and tell others about it. But when you try and imply that it was YOU who achieved this...then there is a problem.
