    Update. here's the backstory on the stage 2 engine. 71 455 bored 10 over, all oil modes, main studs, and short full, we were going to girdle the block but at the time Nick did not have a machinist he could trust installing the girdle, crank was sent to crank specialties in Tennessee in 1990 to be stroked, crank was also polished, KB crank scraper, Nick ordered a set of custom billet connecting rods, Ross racing pistons 10 over. flat top with valve reliefs compression 131/2 to 1 , 9 way TA double roller chain, TA grooved cam bearings, custom Scott brown hydraulic cam 530 intake lift/ 244 duration @ 0.50 / 560 exhaust lift / 264 duration @ 0.50 on a 113 lope center, MSD distributor, high volume oil pump, factory oil pan custom 8 quart pan an pick up, TA harmonic balancer, TA hi volume water pump, factory iron un ported stage 2 heads, New KB roll rockers with KB girdle, TA SPX intake, carburetors to be used Carter competition series 1000 CFM thermo quad, quick fuel Black diamond 950. Originally we broke the engine in September 2014 we had an issue with the oil pump check valve sticking we were supposed to run the motor again in October but unfortunately I had a life altering event. Today Nick sent me pictures of the bottom end he took the pan off to make sure the bearings we're OK which they were. Next stop the Dyno Will keep you posted.

    Please school me, is that a oil control slinger on the side of the block with the pick up tube?
