    It f**king started!!!

    After doing my rebuild for 6 months I finally fired her up today and it ran great, until it ran out of gas. Such a great feeling and experience especially with the open downpipe. I'll try and get a video up tomorrow night when I finish breaking it in according the break in procedure on stealth 316.

    here it is starting... look at that oil pressure!

    I got some REALLY bad lifter tick after I moved the exhaust over so it wasn't lined up with the rest of the pipe anymore, is that normal?

    If the motor hasnt run in a while it is normal to have lifter tick for a little while as they pump back up, some take longer than others.

    Check out this site and article before you do the break in. Most tend to agree with his advice.

    Are you sure its lifter tick your hearing?

    Moving the exhaust should have no affect on the lifters being oiled.

    Maybe it could. If there is no back pressure on the exhaust valve ? IDK just wondering how it could be possible.
