    Hey- Did you get your Monster Catch-Can dialed in yet?
    That "stuff" they collect is foul.

    I'm not sure how I'm going to keep the shaft of my Throttle-Body lubricated now that it isn't soaked with oil anymore.:p

    $71.50 for one person and truck to catch the ferry over to Vancouver Island. ($143 total with my son and his SUV two spots back in line). I remember when my dad would bitch when I was a kid about is costing $20 for a vehicle and a family of four!

    Count on losing 3.5% for every 1000 foot increase in altitude.

    3.5% x 5500 feet = a 19.25 % loss

    So with your SRT-10 you are down nearly 130 flywheel horsepower with a 5500 foot D.A. in Calgary:banghead:

    OR

    Drive to sea-level like you did and GAIN 130 horsepower! :burnout:

    Ronnie, For your engine build, Did you do any oiling mods to the rotating assembly?

    Just the little bath-tubs in the upper (block) main saddles, coated the Gen IV bearings, rounded off some oil passages and went to a (1) piece shuttle for the relief.
    Oh, and 0-30 to reduce oil pressure a bit.

    Crank was hardened & polished and with the new main caps, trued (align-bored) on all axis.

    NO pressure wavering using a LARGE mechanical oil pressure dial-gauge during 6500+ runs.

    So...No, there was no side rod clearance increase/decrease nor oil-hole mods to the crank.

    I left the OEM crank-scraper in place.

    Thousands of miles and still going strong...

    Cam numbers above are wrong; should read 234/236 on a 115, .630"

    The rest is all good. :)

    Thanks!
