    I wanted to thank my engine builder.

    Last week as I was cleaning the engine, yes toothbrush and all, the thought occurred to me to personally thank the man who built my engine. After all, I'm sure he took tremendous pride in doing so.
    I googled his name and come to find out he has sadly passed. Only 53, he work for GM his entire life. His obit was simple and he had a wife and 3 children. It also said he loved cars.
    I want to write his wife and let her know how much I appreciate this motor. Not one issue, and I I'm sure she would feel comforted in knowing. So if there are any David Faith engines out there and you want her to know, I'll get a contact address and we can show some compassion. I know this post doesn't make my car go any faster or tout its performance, but it does make me stop and think of how lucky we are to have these cars.

    Wow excellent idea and very thoughtful.

    You'll see that they didn't only build our engines. I'm in possession of 2 Vs and both engine builders' names show up on that list. David faith didn't build either of mine though.

    Saw the pics of your V's Guy. Love the exhaust. I was an embalmer, back in my earlier years, so the compassion seems to happen naturally. I' love to see how many David Faiths are out there

    Re: I wanted to thank my engine builder.

    I think I asked this before but got no answer. But since mine is an '06, it seems like a moot point.

    Yes. Where in the engine compartment can I find who built my engine? But since mine is an '06, that seems like a moot point regardless.
