That's pretty neat. I'm glad you are getting it sorted out and will be back on the track running it instead of working on it👍👍👍

The engineering blows my mind.  I think and engineering degree might help.

Yaklin has a 170. He told me that he generally just mats it!

That is very understandable

I am amazed that you manage what you do!

We were all in the beginning stages with the cars and no one really knew anything. Some, like Jim Bell, did not know anything but they knew how to market and sold more snake oil than was ever sold off a horse and wagon.

There are still guys out there that mix a little science with aggressive marketing.  Joe Blow brought his car in and left with one that should make 600 hp on a Dyno...modern day Tik Tok marketing.

In the meantime, there HAS been some major league improves in turbos and converters as well as fuel management if one truly needs it.

Or one can just LS swap and forget about magic lol

I am afraid you may end up regretting not using a stock return line... those aftermarket substitutes don't work worth a damn.  We learn from other people's experiences hopefully

Factory says 44 lbs-inch which is a very small amount.

It works though. Using cork gaskets, I would glue the gaskets to the head (but not to the valve cover) with RTV and then torque them down to the 44 inch lbs setting using an inch lbs wrench.  Let them set for 12 hrs, or so, and then retorque to the same setting.

Then crank the engine and let it get hot.  Turn it off, let it cool down and retorque again. Check them every day or so for a few days. Should work.

Be sure the ends of the intake are not leaking analso the turbo drain line at both ends.

And the fitting into the block where the sending unit (or gauge) for the oil pressure screws into the block
