    What did you do to your Olds powered vehicle today?

    I planned to stay conservative at 6 or so for a while until I get stuff sorted. Found out the guy I picked up a 403 for was running up to 15lbs and 38 degrees of timing before he popped it. He didnt even gap the rings. So that gives me hope for pushing it a bit. If I could get this to live...

    been working on getting this guy together, we'll see how much boost it can handle before it pops since its only a cast piston motor. Ended up having an issue getting pushrods for almost two months, so that paused my progress. That and welding the turbo drain in a bad spot, had to cut it off to...
