Sorry for your bad luck. Seems like you had a healthy build on the LS2 (show AND go). Are you building the LS3, too?

Sorry to hear about that. The car still looks great. Good luck with the new LS3. What happened to cause the loss of oil pressure and blown engine?

Good Luck on the new motor!

I'd be real happy with a paltry 700hp!

I assume that "oil compression" means "oil pressure."

LOL....I was thinking the same thing. I'm thinking maybe since the oil is actually kinda being compressed to create the pressure, then this may be the new tech mills description of oil pressure......:

You mean like how they changed "ft-lbs" to "lb-ft"??? That must have been a very complex mental exercise.
