As far as the hv oil pump goes that could be true if you have a stock pan and have problems with oil draining back. With a bigger pan (7 or 8 qt) you shouldnat have any problems. Besides that your lifters and will still meter oil flow to the top end so unless you run outrageously high pressures with a HV pump it wont just pour oil into the top end.

the stock parts should be good to 7000 rpm if you hold your tongue right.

i don't recommend using a high volume oil pump with a stock pan. you already know the reason why you shouldn't. the guy at the seminar is correct, in my opinion.

I agree with dirtbuster and outlawstock17 . I also might add that I would trust a factory cast crank , and a hand selected set of stock rod's with good bolt's , long before I would trust Chinese junk !

Check out this picture of an EAGLE crank . I posted a link to this picture a few month's ago , and only now figured out how to post it on this board . This is a good example of Chinese craftsmanship ! I would not buy one if it was the last crank on earth . Not to mention these egg-fu-yung eating people wont support us on the towel head issue . BUY AMERICAN !!
