If you want it to hook then turn the boost down. You will still have a lot of power.

Did you make that shake up call yet??

Leaves are falling and I don't hear you yet!

Default going back together

Got the pistons,rings, crank, all lower half stuff back after it was balanced.
Takes forever to measure and assemble an engine. Blueprinting and checking clearances is tedious and time consuming. Feeling good about having all my stuff back and should be back together soon.

Exactly
This is why people should realize the difference between assembling an engine and just throwing one together.

It is a 4.155 bore x 4.250 stroke, 461 ci. It now has a 6.635 BBC rod with ross custom pistons. I went with a shorter rod so I did not have the oil ring bridge thru the wrist pin. I have the top ring down 350 thousands.

Yes, I had to buy 2 sets of main bearings to get my clearance with in my specs.
If I did not check, I would have been pulling this engine out again with bearing failure.
I also had a piston to pin clearance issue that was caught. Ross forgot to size them as asked!!

Cam is in not degreed yet. S/w Bullet cams today. We spoke at length about my came and if I advanced the timing if it would help or hurt, Tim said it will only help if I put it in at 2 degrees advanced. I will gain on the bottom and the top will still be good.
I got involved in helping someone (family member) with there car. I would like to kill myself for it. Nothing ever goes as planned!! I got a knuckle with a bearing that seems to be welded in!!

On allot of the newer cars if you didn't pull it apart and anti sieze it early your screwed. On my expedition I had to try to cut my brake discs off and couldn't get them off, then the bearings were seized I ended up replacing it all half shafts, knuckles, discs ball joints, everything and anti seized it all. I'm sure the guy who bought it from me was happy I did later.

I've done a few other for people as well that were similar. Your better off just buying the parts and being done with it instead of dicking around and wasting precious time. Especially since the parts on on the owner and the labor is on you, just get it done and the pain of buying the parts will subside ��

I finally got it done. I would have bought the parts but the guy has got no money and has done me favors in the past. Paybacks!! The torch was my friend applied head to the knuckle and found the perfect size to push what was left of the bearing. Glad its over, now back on the Pontiac!!
