    I have had no problems with them in. I have about 2000 miles on the motor now. Sorry I did not see this earlier.

    Hi. I have an SCCA ITE Road Race car that I have raced for a few years. It has a 383 with Ai heads that has a solid roller in it.

    Recently, I have an issue with oil pressure in my car. At the end of long straights it seems to lose pressure slowly towards the end. It will run 65 lbs. all over the place and at the end of the long straights it will slowly drop to about 45 lbs. It does not move in any turn due to sloshing. The problem has persisted across two blocks and oil pumps. (A motor failure last year) Oil pump is a Melling MV 10555 HV pump. The oil pan is a Canton Road Race pan.

    I put in a Accusump over the winter in hopes of correcting this issue. It seems to have had no effect. The engine builder set the pickup height at 3/8". He is recommending oil restrictors drilled out to between .070 and .090 to help keep excess oil off the top of the motor. As usual, upon doing a search for something such as this, I get folks who recommend them and those that swear the sky will fall if I DO use them! Problem is the only folks using them are drag racers, and the folks who cry foul are street guys......

    I have a solid roller set up with Xldyne components.....which given the cost of, I don't want to mess it up!

    I saw a post of yours where you said you had drilled out restrictors on your street car with a HiPo motor.....did you have any issues? I would love to cure my little "bug" in the car.....
