Those are spendy. I need to somehow justify the additional cost of that vs having mine coated. I am a fan of rollers though. So are you running them on your current engine?

I am. I am so deep into this truck another 6 bills doesn't matter. The truck is almost done. I have figured out hopw to keep these engines running reliably from that other forum. That involves getting rid of all the GM beancounted crap from the crack prone blocks, oil cooler lines that lunched the OEM motor and a spin on fuel filter to name a few. The rollers add peace of mind, but at a cost. The take out optimizer block had no miles on it from the military, as rings had not broken in.
