    Looking for colder IAT’s? we’ve achieved 11c IAT2 on a 41c day and -8c during winter.
    We have proven cabin AC vent temps are better than GM spec, both IAT2's and vent temps are all on video with nothing to hide.

    Great read, thanks for that kirk.

    Love learning about the potential areas to improve these motors for longevity, I for one plan on keeping this car for a long time and want to look after it correctly from the get go.

    Cheers.

    55psi in the top end seems awfully low for a high performance motor.

    If we run a slightly thicker oil, say 10W50, would this increase the oil pressure?

    Yes if you have deleted the relief valve and shimmed the pump, I run a 10w40
    If you haven't done the relief valve and shimmed the pump then it will still bleed off at 55psi
