(For those of you who haven't been keeping up, I recently installed new CompCams beehive valve springs, Walbro 255lph fuel pump, tall valve covers, and Lightning EGR spacer; I still have a couple lifters, Marauder air box, Taurus fan, 3.73s, and traclock to install.)
Woot!! I just ran it and this thing is some kind of strong.
Still need to add a few more things (like an oil change, since I added MMO in hopes of getting the lifter pumped up), but it's ready to roll. It's very strong. I'll probably change the 80s police wheels back to this one since they have good tires and the white one isn't running right anyway. Then I'll detail it up.
I do have some pics and videos that will be posted up as soon as my buddy gets back home to New Orleans and hosts 'em for me.
Thanks for the help, those of you who have contributed... but this is only the beginning.
Oh... the 5,000 RPM power loss seems to be eliminated with the new springs and fuel pump. I ran it to 6,000 RPMs without even realizing it.
I'm ready for gears.
