Just add the break in oil with every change then you don't have to worry about how much zinc is in the oil of your choice.

Thanks. It will be just like buying the blower all over again, but should be able to pay it off by the year's end (knock on wood!). Should have her back on the street within the next month and making well north of 600 rwhp.

Stock cubes. 'Not looking for a ton more power or to set records, plus it's not like I had budgeted for this ahead of time. I guess the bright side is I caught this before ordering my 9-inch, or else I'd be in way over my head.

So I thought I would give a little update. It took the engine builder a bit longer than I had planned, but we finally got the forged engine block back this past week. 'Went with Callies H-beam rods and coated JE pistons with valve reliefs. I decided to have the compression lowered a little (was going for 9.5:1 but it came out to 9.8:1, according to the engine builder, which is fine).

The engine is back in the car with, of course, a new cam with much larger split for the blower (223/244) and similar lift and same 114 LSA as my old cam, which is just 1 more degree of overlap than my old cam, but not too radical. At first, I was just going to go down one pulley size on the Maggie (to a 3.6), but with the compression lowered, I was concerned I might not meet my power goals. Instead of going with a 3.4, I've decided to keep the 3.8 for now and do an OD rear to limit belt slip. I figure this will put me in the 8 psi range (I know I could go a lot higher but don't want to upgrade the fuel system again right now). This same cam and Maggie setup made around 630rwhp on a Callaway Corvette at about the same boost level. We're planning on between 600-620 in my case, which would be perfect for me.

I also have a Monster LT1-SC twin-disk clutch that just got installed yesterday, so at least I'll be able to have part of my drivetrain upgraded, though not a full 9-inch, as originally planned. That will just have to wait 'til next year, along with fatter, stickier rubber (another reason it's pointless to add more power right now; LOL).. The bright side is I was finally able to find a 2nd car/"beater" for a good price from someone I know so I can drive the Camaro and buy tires for it less often.

Anyway, time for some pics...

The "beater" (2000 Cadillac Deville--well-maintained; flawless paint and interior for a car its age; needs only minor work). 'Definitely no gas-sipper, but takes Regular gas and still gets at least 5 more MPGs around town than my Camaro, LOL. 'Plenty of room for hauling my drum kit to gigs too (gonna have to cover those light-colored seats though to keep the dirt and grime off). Let the AARP jokes begin, haha (FTR, I'm only 37)...

A little late but I would have gone 10-10.5:1 compression. Maggies love compression and you will run out of blower before motor.

Yeah, I'm sure stock compression would have been fine. 'Just thinking long-term, in case plans change, down the road (doubtful, but you never know!).

Looks good! When are you thinking it will be tuned and dynoed?

Hard to say, but probably next week. 'Depends on how fast the break-in process works. We will run 2 rounds of BR-30 break-in oil, before switching to LS-30.

Cool! I have thought about using the LS30 oil but ADM suggested 15w50 for mine.

'Depends on the motor. I would go with what your shop recommends (doubt many would second-guess a well-respected shop like ADM ).

I agree but you might be surprised when it comes down to what oil people are running.

So, the Black Ace is finally retuned. 'Made 572 rwhp/548 rwtq on Lashway's stingy Mustang dyno--just 4 more peak rwhp, BUT 55 more peak rwtq. The mid-range gains are more impressive though: 40-50rwhp more at the same RPMs, and everything peaks earlier, which is nice for the street. Josh says my fuel system was maxing out, despite the 63-lb injectors, ZL1 pump, and ADM FPCM. I'm sure I'll be pretty happy with the results when I drive it though (picking it up tomorrow). Here's an overlay of the new and old graphs...
