    So I pulled the intake off today and noticed that the intake side on the heads on number 4 was a redish color. What does this mean? all the rest looked the same except that one ....also i was wondering what oil to use to break this thing in once i put the new cam and bearings in? Do you guys recomend using a high volume oil pump over stock.

    #1 Readish like rust ? #2 Shell Rotella (O'riellys) or Torco high additive breakin" and Only use a HV pump with a High Capacity pan (we even use a standard volume pump on Olds even with a big pan) Tom

    Tell me Jeremy, is that easily accomplished with the intake manifold removed?
    Look at the picture again.

    Now that I think about it, probably nothing.
    I stand corrected.
    However, it may be a little difficult to get the engine up to operating temperature don't ya think.

    prob just had a leak at the coolant port and some moisture leached over, it happens. if you're goin to a high volume pump, buy a arp,moroso, or milodon oil pump drive shaft. the stocker will snap in 2 on ya

    Dare to be different, if it turns out great you can claim you planned it that way.
