Given the money invested, I'd figure out a way to pressurize the oil system prior to start-up. Just spinning the engine and hoping it builds pressure (even with plugs removed, or coil disconnected) doesn't seem like a smart move. I've never been able to spin up pressure in my KA and SR after they sat, drained, and you can't do it with a long screwdriver like you can with an L or a KA/E.

I showed a couple basic pictures of the pressurizer I use in a near-the-end issue of DQ. 10psi or so, wait for the oil to dribble out of the cam lobes.

As an aside, by turning over the oil filter you can fill it up before you spin it on, as I mentioned above. This takes care of quite a bit of the issue during oil changes.

Bled everything. All that's really left is flushing the fuel lines, add coolant and wiring!

Looks great too!! Now take that silicone throttle body boot off and trim it straight!!! It makes the eyes draw to it. Attention to detail man, the rest of it looks killer clean!! When you do your wiring, make sure you tuck it good, it just looks too clean to leave anything hanging out there. Simple always looks nice!

Lol don't worry that 90 is on the large "to do" list. Number 1 on that list is to get it running. Then in my spare time do touch up paint and little things like that 90

Well she is alive! Already put over 500 miles on here the first week. Only one big issue tho... Where the head bolts onto the timing chain cover the engine builder didnt put rtv to seal it so it leaks. The builder is going to switch it out for me along with doing a couple other things so its not that big of a deal. She is in desperate need of a tune tho. Idle is a little ruf but I can tell by just boosting a little that its going to be a stupid fast car. So far all is going great and a few hundred more miles and an safc I should be ready to dyno tune :)
