They are the same length. I couldn't tell by feel that the unpainted one was any stiffer. It made some improvement but not much when at operating temperature except at WOT. That alone gives some piece of mind.What exactly is/are the differences in the two springs? Stiffness? Length? Wire gauge?
I hope that I won't need to pull this engine again anytime soon. The only changes that I was considering was the Trick Flow 240 heads and a roller cam. The heads were on a LONG backorder or I would have used them in this build while the engine was out.I just read about the cam and the wiped lobes… Had a 440 wipe 2 lobes on a MP 528 decades ago… Pulled the motor build another short block and put that motor in with the top end off the other and a new cam.. Years later I tore the short block apart and the crank and bearings were perfect which told me all that metal was in the filter.. Even the oil pump rotor assembly looked like new. I don’t doubt that you will find the same once you open up the bottom end..
At the 950 idle, it bounces up to 1500 and back to 950. It flutters a bit through regular operation as well. That is likely to be an issue with the coil though, I'd suspect.Interesting that your tach is bouncing.. Does it move a lot?
When I had that system on my car, and even now my (Auto Meter 'Street Tach') never stays completely still, but I chalk that up to the slightly more radical idle...and your cam is a little bigger than mine.
Hmm okay...I've used those a few times and never seen that big a needle swing (that didn't coincide with engine RPM).At the 950 idle, it bounces up to 1500 and back to 950. It flutters a bit through regular operation as well. That is likely to be an issue with the coil though, I'd suspect.
I run AdGuard constantly and it's never failed to work on any/all sites I visit (I'm on my PC, running Edge browser;It's the site if you're not gold. I have adguard and it works great anywhere else but here. Par for the coarse
How ya doing Ed?

The other bigtime one is AdBlock Plus, which I run on the Chrome browser I infrequently use.
Eh, what's left of this "machine" runs cold and hot these days brother....been running pretty cold these last
several days, I have to admit.
Many years ago now I had this issue with Don's control box. He had no idea what was going on. Pretty much blaming it on my tach. If you have dealt with Don at all, you know that he is very opinionated. I like the guys control boxes, and use them, but really can't stand the man. I buy his stuff on ebay so I don't have to deal with him. Anyway, I got Shannon at Redline involved and he figured out the problem. Shannon sent me a few diodes for my cars and the issue was resolved. Ever since then, a diode is included when you buy a new FBO control box.......Why would this be an issue with the "better" FBO ECU but not with the factory ones?
