hamkj, I would go buy a cheap compression tester and check for compression before doing any driving at all. For all you know you might have a hole in top of a piston from detonation broken skirt\rings who knows, but you could end up doing a lot of damage. Me and my brothers race 5 second drag bikes, and this is a common occurrence < sometimes weekly. Just to be safe you know.
fully disassembled, blasted, customized and restored 75 targa with factory hard top, 993 style turbo ft fenders, steel flares, C2 bumpers and rockers, 82 3.0 sc 9.5/1 engine with PMS flywheel, 964 cams, flowed heads, ssi's short geared 915 w/lsd, polybronze, bilstein,working lambda, modified and highly tuned cis, tensioners, pop valve, backdated exhaust and heater, 2300 lbs. no bolt left untouched. 1970 911E. Nice car but needs a re-do.
