My BTR seems to love the nitrous. But it's also my bad combination.

According to the impeller charts I'm getting close to 300 more hp when I hit the button.

I assume I'm making another 100-150 at the rpm the bottle brings me to. Then the nitrous on top of that

Installed the timing chain tonight. Have a couple of issues I am not sure what I did wrong. 1st the oil pump gear freely slides on the crank. 2nd the chain is touching the oil pump very slightly. I guess i will take it back apart Sunday and double check that the bottom gear is all the way back on the crank. I was also getting tired and did not look to see it the chain was different on the other side. Not sure what to do about the oil pump gear. I reused and old crank key maybe I just need to use a new one.

Don't worry about the oil pump drive, it doesn't really matter if it slides freely.

As far as the chain, sometimes that happens with OEM pumps and double rollers, even with the pump spacers installed. Just take it off and grind a small area where the chain is touching behind the pickup flange. FWIW, the Melling pumps have a small area already ground to clear.

Thanks for the reply. I realized this morning the balancer would hold the oil pump drive in place. I also ordered a melling pump today after doing some research.

The melling pump did not come with any spacers. I purchased a 10296 meling select pump. It clears better but I still only have .035 clearance. I am going to check to make sure the crank sprocket is pressed far enough back. If it is I will clearance the pump.

The eagles I am using are 6.100 in length with a .945 pin. The part number is 6100m3d. You can also get scat in a 6.100 with .945 pins p/n 6100945 or 6100945a with arp2000 bolts. For a 1000 hp build I would upgrade the rod bolts at least to arp2000 bolts.

Looks like my heads are going to be ready today. Valve job is done and the heads were milled .042. Just have to check spring height.

Didn't get a lot done tonight dealing with a sick little one. Drilled the new lifter trays. Should have taken pictures. Also don't try it without a unibit. Lifters are installed. I also got the rear cover on. If every thing goes to plan I will degree the cam, check piston to valve, and get the heads on tomorrow.
