Well, I have great news! I pulled a late one last night to get all the systems connected, tested and fully operational so today I could get the new 464 big block Buick fired up and broken in. After obtaining the last 2 foot section of vacuum hose this morning I called a buddy to stop by and help me out. Break-in requires a 25-30 minute run between a steady 2000-2500 RPM's. The engine started instantly and maintained RPM for 28 minutes at 2300 RPM. Me personally, that 28 minutes was pretty nerve racking as that is what makes or breaks an engine or even more so the hydraulic cam. After cool down I changed the oil from the break-in oil to a pretty expensive racing style oil that contains the ZDDP additives that help these motors survive. With the oil change completed I decided to reintroduce the car to the neighborhood with a nice and proper burnout. I am pretty excited about this set up as the car has some great driveability and this is without even touching the timing or the carburetor yet and it's still breathing through a ratty old 2" dual exhaust. I have a 2 1/2" exhaust just waiting to be installed but first I have to decide on whether or not I should go with headers. All of this will factor into the final carb and timing adjustments. Let me know what you think about headers or not or what experience you have had.
