decided to get rid of the cig lighter plug and add an aeroforce gauge since I never used that plug anyway. Still waiting on the machine shop for my engine which is supposed to be done in the next 2 weeks or so. Turbos are out 3-5 weeks and my fuel system should be done by august according to Aeromotive

It’s a stock lsa block. Just plugging the oil squirters and adding rods and pistons. I’m gonna run this until it blows up and then I’ll go aftermarket block and heads
If things are clearanced for the power, it should last. Good idea plugging the squirters. IMO, forged pistons don't need them and they take away from oil volume when a high power engine needs it the most. I love the hardware chosen for this build. Keep us posted on updates!

That’s what my machinist was saying. It’s better to have the oil pressure at the mains. Thanks tho I’ve been trying to buy all the right stuff so I don’t have to do things twice or have things break and cost me more money in the long run
