I noticed during the process of building you changed from running valve cover breathers on each valve cover to running dual pcv vacuum lines.........can you explain the reasoning behind that ???? Pros or cons ???

Rusty, it was actually the other way around. I started out with the dual PCV's with Volvo check valves inline. By mid season, the cylinder leakage had gotten to the point that there was too much pressure in the crankcase....that's when the valve cover breathers went on. -Al

Monday was 'dyno day' with the freshened up motor. Sorry for the out of focus. Jason from Victory Engines attends to some details before we fire it to break in the cam and lifters.

Winter has returned to Dakota Territory. This is the only internal combustion engine I'm working with today.
