4000+ HP, it pulls.
Wow that's bizzare for sure. Make sure you clean the threads good, loctite doesn't like oil.
1996 Camaro, in progress: mild 5.3, TH400, T6 S475, 8.50 chassis cert...
1993 K1500 W/T
1985 Yamaha FJ1100
1979 Suzuki GS550E (cafe racer)
Okay, oil pump hardware cleaned & torqued with loctite. Oil pan on, filled with fresh 0w-40.
Got the engined fire up, brought up to operating temp. The cooling fans do a good job of keeping things cool, however I am blowing large amounts of white smoke. A sign that the head gasket(s) have given up doing their job.
I have a bottle of Blue Devil Head Gasket Sealant in there now, the gearhead in me knows this isn't the right thing to do but I can keep from having to pull those heads I will be stoked.
Made a little blue devil video:

Update the thread:
The car has had a few changes lately.
Is the crazy idea throwing a V6 in the back that drives a massive turbo that feeds an even larger turbo for the engine up front?!?!
