I drove the new motor today. It ran pretty good but leaked oil like a sieve. I didnt mill the manifold to compensate for the decked block and shaved heads and I should have. Thats my only complaint. It isnt so bad that I am leaking vacuum but I am running oil out the back onto the headers and it smokes at a stop. Other than that little inconvenience that will be rectified tommorow I am happy as a clam. The exhaust shop did a stellar job as always . I highly reccomend Walts Muffler in Port Orchard Wa . The manager Travis is a hard core circle track racer and he does awesome work!
I went from 4 bbl heads , torker intake and 9:1 compression to semi mildly ported 2 bbl heads with 4V valves, double springs and 10.5 compression with a compcams 280 H cam , weiand excellerator intake, and proform bodied carb and MSD everything. I have low end torque now I only dreamed of before and I can still rev to my 7000 limiter without floating valves. I cant wait till spring so I can take her out to the strip and get some real numbers.

Bad A,

Good deal, hope you get the leaks plugged soon. Don't run a almost four barrel on it though, you know what happened to the last guy on M&M that tried that.
