Hi Guys,
I have built a 372C and have a question...
After a high (over 4K) rpm burst, I get quite a bit of valvetrain (or so it seems) noise at idle. I have a Mlling HV pump, and the Price motorsports oil restrictor kit with the lifter gallery plug drilled to .125 for my hyd cam. Am I starving the lifters, or is it possible the standard sump doesn't hold enough oil?

Welcome to M&M . I hope that you enjoy our website and forums. To help answer your question, is the noise a lifter or rocker arm noise? What type of rockers do you have? It's possible that you have the adjustment too tight.
