Well..... Its been forever since i've had an opportunity to post about my build.
After install and initial start up the engine had a tapping sound. Initially we fiured it was the rockers hitting the cover so i bought an aluminum cover. This didnt fix the tapping.... then we machined releifs into the valve cover... didnt help...
we dropped the pan just to see if anything was obviously wrong. found that Cyl 1 piston was able to rock within the cylinder on its own. very un-cool.
this was pretty much a year ago and its been a cluster fk getting things sorted. i'm now ditching the blower idea, staying N/A and going to 10.5:1 CR with new pistons. The bad cylinder only needed a hone job so only one new piston was needed.... but you try getting a single piston from a manufacturer. so now i'm committing to replacing all 6 pistons just to get this pig rolling.
oh and on top of it all christmas day my wheels and tires were solen off my rig while it was parked at the shop...... wooooooo.
i just want to go wheeling.
