haha! I sure hope not!

I will tell you, though if for any reason the rpm's (and oil pressure, I'm sure) drop below about 650rpm or so, I do get an oil light on the dash.

Actually, I just got that (oil light) yesterday in the morning on a cold start. she was kinda poopin' and running like it was starved for air or something, and I remembered my "yoda'" telling me that for every 10 degrees the temp goes up or down, I'll likely have to adjust the air mixing screw at the throttle body (since I don't have idle air control) we have been talking about making an adapter to get my 3 wire iac to acutally control the idle, but that's for another thread..

(power is 128 P.S. -jap rating- about 118 H.P. on the "wild cam") - more than enough for a good time! But, as you can see to the left, It doesn't see much action.
