    It looks like things are coming along nicely.
    The K1s are a great rod and offer very good value.
    Coated pistons are also a nice touch.
    Thin rings for less friction and more go-power!

    I’ve been using the Mobil 1 15-50 for years .. appears I don’t lose that quart or 2 of oil between oil changes like the 0-40 or even the Royal purple I tried ..

    Nice WIDE torque band which is real world usable, instead of going with a peaky cam that gives higher peak horsepower numbers. :)

    Nice results! Question about oil pressure, I thought these engines make about 150psi? Hence why people have reported blowing non-OEM oil filters? 60-70psi is common oil pressure for many engines.

    You might see 90-100 psi on a cold start and 60-70 when up to temperature, which is normal.
