Ok Mike that makes sense. I never gave warm up much of a thought but I will let it sit longer. I also never knew about checking spring pressure. I will add that. I wish there was a sticky of yearly inspections for cammed cars for those who have little knowledge. Maybe someone can make one explaining all the extra's of caring for cammed cars? Like I have said many times, I don;t beat on the car, never race it, smoke the tires or red line. Sometimes just for fun I will wind out 1 thru 4 but shift around 5,000ish rpms. Maybe I will lower my shift point to 4,000?


SSE I used a name brand shop and have no issues witht he shop at all. They did a good job on the initial install and have really helped me out on the rebuild.

I did the JRE cam package which included

JRE Custom Ground 3 Bolt Camshaft
Valve Springs
Spring Seats
Valve Seals
Locks
Retainers
LS Trunion Upgrade
Crankbolt
Cam Sprocket Bolt
Timing Cover Gasket
Front Crank Seal
Camshaft Timing Chain Gear
Hardened Pushrods
