    My friends daughter put a bottle of pennzoil ATF in the engine. I said it wouldn't kill it but should change oil ASAP. Thanks, DEL.

    That's an old used car lot trick to clean the crankcase before a car is put up for sale.

    The single biggest reason you want to get it out as soon as you can is that there are things in ATF that are not friendly to engine seals. Not knowing the year of the car/engine, I would change the oil at the first opportune time. Later year engine seals are a little better, but none are made to deal with ATF. Type "F" seems to be less harmfull to seals, and DEXTRON IV being the worse to earlier engine seals.

    Alot of people will tell you its a great engine flush. It will flush the engine, but not because it has more detergents like many think. It will clean the engine for the same reasons diesel or kerosene will clean it.
    BTW, if you take it to a oil change facility and they discover it has ATF on the oil, they are going to be pissed. Same if you turn it in to a "recycle" fascility and they discover it as well.

    One of oil change places around here learned we were using an "engine flush" and told us not to bring the trucks in any more if we continued to use it. Engine flush is getting harder and harder to find in auto stores just for that reason. All "Gunk 5 Minute Engine Flush" is is diesel with that is made a little less volitile so it can be stored on the shelf.

    You shouldn't have to post with quotes. Don't you have a "reply to thread" under the last post on the left side?

    Now I do, Rebooted with base software last friday. Windows inserted 9 version of explorer without my knowledge. I got on to the forum and reply with quotes was the only option I could see. Bob, I am not the best on these things as it is. Could you do me a Favor? My Nephew posted one of my dyno runs on youtube. I would like to post it here. Printed out instructions from this site ,etc, but did not have the time.

    Well, I assume you found that vid. That was the only one posted that I took with clear focus on the dyno screen. The engine ran quite well. 580 chev with 2.3x1.8 dart heads. Goodwin cnc'd the chambers. Same basic Blower motor longblock. No cam change, 270 with 700 net lift. Made 1070 on blower and 1350 on turbo's with 29 deg blower and 26 deg turbo. Pump 93 and 10% ethanol, widely used up here. Same Boost, 12-13 ish. Post the vid Bob, if you can clean it up. My voice aint on there.

    I'll post it as a new thread. I can't "clean it up" because I can only link it as is.
