Sounds like good advice!
The best you may ever get.
And it's free!!
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.
$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!
I remember 2 bucks per vehicle and 50 cents per oerson; but I'm a fossil.
5500ft difference in DA.....would have been fun....
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:
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?
Damn, I thought 5500 was bad here in Vegas back in July or august
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.
Well, I don't know about my truck transporting money, but it has cost me quite a bit to get it to where it is now.
