    yes it does

    actually gn7 the mill was doing great and he was very happy with the results.the issues i had seem to not have been the real reason it let gocould have been he was racing a fountain{single engine} and he held it in rough water for about 2 miles to the floor with the pump going dry and then reloading,so im gonna guess the hyd roller lifter pumped up and then kaboom

    as always thanks for the comments,travis

    Just a reminder, the Gen V block takes a different front cover, oil pan and heads. Most of the aftermarket heads will work on both so if you are going with Brodix you won't have to worry. You will have to run a Gen V head gasket though. (I hope you I did not bore you with stuff you already know.
