In the Nov. '08 story "A Monster Is Born," page 71, the caption showcasing the combustion chamber is incorrectly pictured and is not an AFR cylinder head. To get it right, here's the correct image of the 325 head with the optional CNC chamber upgrade. We should also note that the as-cast 325 head has an 119cc chamber while the upgraded CNC chamber comes in a 121cc configuration, which contributes to added flow and power gains.
No one cares what car you drive, what you wear, or how much jewelry you've got hanging off your wrist. It means nothing if you can't hold your head high proudly. Those things are only surface-deep. They don't define anyone. At times, our society gets brainwashed on unimportant and commercialized items. People are often mesmerized over what everyone else is doing, what they're wearing, and even what they're driving. Instead, they should focus on themselves.
I've never followed the leader per se, and I never conformed to what was "cool," instead doing things for myself and for my friends. My past not only pushes but motivates me. Thankfully, I have grown up with a small group of very close and supportive friends who also strive for the best in themselves. Plus, the guys at QMP Racing have given me more life experience than I could get in 10 years. When you surround yourself with successful people, you are bound to do/be something great. It's almost inevitable. I've got goals, and I've got a plan for the future.
As of now, this month's edit schedule has left me and the CHP team a bit drained. But I'm hungry and I strive for the best in myself and to consistently do better in everything I do. Not many realize it, but most of my scholastic career was wrought with fellow students who would drive home the fact that I would never make anything of myself. I was never into sports, and I could probably count on one hand the number of times I've ever thrown a football. I was the "car guy" who thought about nothing but. Comments were frequent and almost daily. Never did I realize that those seemingly hurtful comments were actually creating and molding a stronger individual. I may not be a rich man, but I can take things like pride and respect for myself to the bank. I make riches through other aspects of life. I get to be part of something that I can be proud of, and that in itself is rewarding. Sometimes, you need to find yourself-step out of the realm of things and get back to zero-start over. Forget everyone else for a change, stay true to yourself and do what makes you happy.
