Default All It Needs Is Gasssss!!!

Engine is in and all hooked up. Ready to be fired up tomorrow. All it needs is gas. Reduced compression to 9.6 - 9.8, 330HP. Regular or Premium?

I’d go with regular 87 octane and see if it pings.

Looks great. 87 octane is fine.....you won't be loading it hard for right now anyway. Just need something to burn.

Sounds good! Everything go good with first start? Is that a flat tappet cam or roller?
