New engine: Sweet!

First thing I noticed was the oil pressure gauge - way over 40 at idle and just a couple of notches below pegged at 70mph.

In addition to the crate engine I had them replace the distributor; pull the radiator for a full flush; replace some seals on the A/C and evacuate/fresh fill the freon; replace a bad airbag impact sensor and one front ABS wheel speed sensor.

I kept letting off the accelerator to see how much I was having to give it to cruise - just a tap, really, a fraction of what I used to.

Total: $5400

I didn't discover until it was too late that GM has a factory approved 383 crate engine as an upgrade to the 350. Something like 340hp and 425 ft/lbs of torque. It's about $1800 more than the 5.7 crate engine.

Maybe when I hit 400K miles I'll go for that one. :)
