This is a fresh rebuilt Buick 350 runnin' on my test bench..
Got 9.8:1 compression (Speed Pro hypers & moly), rebuilt heads with good portjob, 470/470 lift cam, Poston aluminium Intake, 600cfm Holley, 1968 1.6:1 aluminium rocker arms, modified oil passages, timing cover and filter housing, oil balance tube on rear side, crooved cam bores in block, double roller.....and so on.
Let it run for more than 30min. with 2500rpm's to get it REALLY HOT (more than 100°C!), and to have a look on the oil pressure when running such high temps...with 15-40 standard mineral based oil..OF COURSE!
Huhh...32psi..at roughly 650 rpm's..did you expect this?
I DID!! Get your hands dirty and rebuild your good old Buick engine!!
HE IS WORTH IT!!

Fresh rebuilt Chevy 454 "proof of life"
This is a short test run video after break in of a fresh rebuilt Chevy 454 BB.
Got 0.030" overs. .100 dome Hypers, new stock lenght H-beams, RV-cam, Hi-volume oil pump, Crosswind intake, Hi-flow aluminum water pump, port matched heads with new valves and so on...
Runs smooth and crisp, even wit the 600cfm carb I installed for breaking the engine in only...
Checking the compression on Ken's '94 Chevy truck. All cyliders except one were between 130 and 150 PSI, one was at 85. Time for some head gaskets! Stay tuned for the exciting sequel....

Built 307 first start (Open headers)
This is the engine in my truck and I've had it torn down almost all the way and then put a better set of heads on it (Bigger valves) Highrise intake, new cam with a .470 lift, lifters, roller rockers, Chrome valve covers too. I'm just building this engine up cause its what I've got, plus wll the parts on this will fit on a 350, so I can re-use these parts for when I build a 383 for it. By the way, the carb isn't right, I'm having it rebuilt now. should have it back today.
