Sure wish I would have made the first pic in this thread... Here's mine from the same day...
Don't know if y'all have seen this video. Ran into Casey during one of the cruises in Austin and found out about this video. Anybody else can find themselves in this video?

Kyle - appears it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure this one out.....drilling into oil pan while installed, metal shavings, & then oil pump failure

Kyle just Scanned through this Thread and it sucks the issues you are having. If I can be of any help let me know. I think going 3 bar map and speed density tune is the only way to go with your set up for sure. Its a long process to tune but isnt anything for a good tuner.

I have to admit at CF2 the only way I recognized you was because when you got there you were carrying 4-24 cases of beer at once.... I thought, "Yup, that's Kyle dot Gilmour alright"

Didn't get to speak to you but for about two seconds when you came and shook my hand when the ATL crew arrived with Spike, but good luck with your build and enjoy that mammouth garage/house/barn/omgwtfbbqsauce thing.

It was nice meeting you at the fest Kyle, and listening to your ride on your cell. Sorry to hear about the oil pump failure, i know it's a known issue on the 2010's as i have the documentation to prove it. Same thing happened to my first engine so i went with a GM High volume oil pump... so far so good on my second LS3.

So Kyle, where are you going to go from here?

I just spent the better part of my entire afternoon (while at work ) reading this thread from start to finish. Just like re-watching a whole TV series from the start to the present, now I can't wait for the next update/episode...
