    I'd be interested also....

    I hope you raised the oil pressure some....55lbs at 5800 scares me but I know stockers run super thin oil but still....need it to live....a while.

    My 505 carries about that much oil pressure at 7100 crossing the finish line.

    Extensively modified oiling system I assume, Gary...
    I hear the new block can live with those lower pressures but you still have iron block, right?

    Yes, I'm speaking on my iron block combo.

    That is very impressive , 1 second under the index is a great accomplishment. You will find lots in the carb and tuning. We sold the Super Stocker and I might have a real good BOP front inlet carb that was tweeked my Danny Ashly. I will check and get back to you as we do a major clean out. Welcome to the dark side.
