Here is the response I shared over on LX as well...

 

Set it up like how you are going to run it. Injectors and all. Use a zinc additive I know Andy likes for that to be added. As for oil weight ask Andy But I think he likes 10/40 but again ask your builder. Once it started you don't want over excessive idling nor do you want to run it rich. So the key is get it started. And as soon as you can get it tuned. Also let your tuner know its a new motor so they don't have it on the rich side so one doesn't bore wash the cylinders... And remember a start up tune is exactly that..

I'm installing my crank (ati 17% overdrive) and its stopping .129" from being flush with the end of the crank shaft.  Is this normal should it be flush?

I need some more advice. I have a PWR 393, long tubes, corsa exhaust, blower cam for 15lbs, PWR mean street heads, and a YSI supercharger. My question is what spark plug is everyone running. I will be around 700 rwhp at first. But as the hp bug gets to me will probably turn it up to 800, 900 or 1000. Can I use the same spark plug for all 3 levels, if so which ones?

I need some more help.  I installed a new short block and after the installation I am still getting the same long and short term knock.   Where should I look to find the source of the knock.  Any ideas would be help full.  I think it is false knock.

So I have a few more questions.  I am getting p0307 code.  I checked cylinder 7 and it has orange stuff on the piston.  I'm assuming my head gasket is leaking. Is this true? Haven't done a compression test (should I since I see what looks like radiator fluid on piston). Can I retorque the heads or do I need to replace the head gasket and stock head bolts? Is there anything else but the gasket that would cause this?
