That's the good and the bad of boost. The crappy thing for us roadies is it takes a lot more money to make big power NA so you have to be prepared for the sticker shock. I think an LS7 build will...

I can't think of another that says more. As for the temp, from what I have researched, you want an oil temp above 212 to help moisture boil off from the oil. Application is a big driver as what you...

Well the budget is putting the project on hold but I think I've got it worked out. Going to run a 10mm spacer and the late model truck studs that are longer. Going to work pretty good I think.
