Well I havent had much time for the race car for a while. I had a injector suck open, fixed that and now Im getting a new problem after 4 months problem free. She goes lean if you rev it above idle to 2000rpm. So lean it just cuts off. If I rev I above 2000rpm its just fine. I just havent had time to work on it.

Because the Chevy aluminum head studs I used are super long top and bottom, I ended up having to use a super long lock. The body had to be turned down to fit into the rocker fulcrum. Once aligned and torqued down, the guide plates were tig welded together. Pushrods are Comp seamless 0.80 wall.
