finally got my engine done

hey i know its been forever but i finally got my engine done with working 10-12 hours a day and having my daughter on the weekends it took a while. its rebuilt. sent to machine shop for .30 over ross racing pistons, scat h beam rods, total seal gapless rings. Went to 9:1 conpression ratio. all new bearings and seals and the whole nine. 3 angle valve job service heads with new valve guides and seals. only thing i got a slight exhaust leak but you only hear it when i give it some gas not too bad. it runs good still in the break in period so i havent gotten, into it so i guess once its broken in time to up the boost.

Sweet. :thumbs2:

Have any other specs on the engine? Such as the cam lift and duration? What's pushing the boost?

Re: finally got my engine done

im still only got the 5psi boost pulley on the charger, im breaking it in right i dont go into boost, i went to 1psi to make sure everything is ok for now other than that im going to drive easy for 2000 miles, i changed the oil after the initial 30 break in. i will change it again at 500miles then at 2000 miles ill put synthetic in and have fun. im going to upgrade to either 13 or 15 lbs of boost. stock cam for now.
