I've never been able to get a pair to last longer than about 12-18 months.

Is the gun rock hard when you try to add grease? If the joint is saturated, then there will be too much pressure for the gun to pump against. Especially with newer ball joints that seal a lot better.

It's a common problem with dual plane intakes because of their design. Half the cylinders get their charge from a larger plenum and half from a smaller plenum. In each half, half of those cylinders...

A Coyote weighs almost 450lbs I think. Which is about what an all iron SBF 302 weighs. You build a SBF like we build these days with aluminum heads and intake etc, and it's ~375lbs give or take?...

Not worth the money if you're just trying to get performance for value. The extra cost associated with it could be used to build a SBF with substantially more power.
