Finished up the front end. Need to pick up gaskets for the supercharger, so I just set it in place until next week.

Looks like its coming together!

I don't have gaskets on mine... I have RTV'd the supercharger onto the IC the last 2-3 times.

I'm a little iffy on that oil pressure mod. Do you or Bill know how it raises the oil pressure? Whether it actually raises it or just tricks the engine into thinking it'* higher? Just curious...

It'* just a shim that makes it just a little harder to push the bypass valve out of the way. Give you about 10 more PSI

Are you tapping the gas lightly and then all of a sudden a jolt happens?

I see how that would increase the pressure, but it also seems to me like it would bring some added negatives with it like restricting the flow of oil or something since you are raising the required pressure to open the valve.

That'* just the bypass valve, It'* not restricting anything.

Sorry for all the questions, but how does the bypass valve work?

It'* just a plunger with a spring. When the oil pressure goes up, the plunger moves and the oil runs back in to the oil pan instead of going up. So it holds the pressure more steady.
