Did 365 at the wheels @ 16 psi.
Turbonetics t3/t4 (too small?). Awesome torque, no lag.
Electromotive management/big injectors/Bosch 044 pump
Kept the redline around 6k.
I bought he engine used, supposedly fresh from a big name race shop back east. It was f*cked up from the start... they put the main bearing shells in upside down and starved the crank for oil. Lucky I looked.
It used Rodeck (dry) sleeves, they're more famous for sprint car motors I think. No issues with headgaskets, but it did have O rings on the sleeves with matching grooves cut into the head.
I think the 3 liter block casting supports the cylinders a little farther up than a 2.5, but it's been a lonnnnng time since I saw a 2.5 apart.
2nd go 'round, I braced the bottom of the pickup to the block, to stop it vibrating like a pendulum. 3rd time I pulled it apart I found a spiral fracture at the top of the pickup, a little bit down from the flange.
I quit....
