Default Re: blueprinting not hotrodding

i agree with the above definition, but who knows what these engine's tolerances are supposed to be anyway?

i agree about port/gasket matching, as well as de-burring, smoothing, and cleaning out all the trash/metal chips.

and case in point, i just installed a brand new, never run, grubee starfire gt4 that i cleaned up, and it's doing 40+ on it's first run, with no four stroking, no hesitation, no bog, no nothing. smooth as glass...

running it full throttle right off the bat with 100:1 Opti2.

break-in time is for the birds...
