There is one other thing my engine guy swears by,  that I still am not to sure about, but maybe this is the place/post to to clear it up.
I bought oil restrictors for my first build and when I gave them to Don (engine guy) he asked what they were for ( I know he knew but he wanted to drive his point home), when I told him he threw the bag in the trash  :o, I about shit, then asked what the hell he did that for, and his response was that if I wanted to slow the flow to the top end we would just put smaller holes in the cam bearings. It made sense, and I wasn't going to convince him otherwise so I let him run with it. It seemed to do the trick, but I still wonder ????
Any comments ????

Do it once it's a mistake,
do it twice you're a fool !

I'm guessing it would be better to have the oil have no issue's getting back to the pan than trying to slow it down going up to the top. Wait a minute, that has nothing to do with restrictor's.  :banghead:

That would be called a "free mod", flip it over and drill a smaller hole in the cam bearing instead of spending extra money on the restrictors.

You can restrict the oil later by installing a roll pin in each of your pushrods, instead of buying "restricted pushrods" :screwy:.....hand full of roll pins < $5  restricted Pushrods  $200+ :o
