That type of sensor he has isnt prone to vibration failure like the bigger diaphram type sensors you see on cheaper oil pressure sensors. Thats more like a transducer, ive had the diaphram ones fail, then remote mounted it with braided line.

So I picked up the car at 12am on Friday and was at the track at 7am.

I got about 5 laps in before she started running too hot. I was able to get her on and off for a few laps by letting her cool down between sessions. I will do what I did last time, drain the whole system and slowly refilling while elevating the rear of the car. Should be fine. Maybe I can find someone to vacuum fill it.

She also started to leak oil from the oil fitting that I installed where it connects to the block. That will need to be sorted too. The only other issue was with her blowing oil out of the catch can. I am going to try to set up a drain back to prevent that issue.

Ignore the radical in the video (fyi, that's the car with the lap record at high plains... nemesis)

You can build the most awesome thing in the world but at some point, an 80yr old man in a crx is probably going kick your butt on the track... don't ask me how I know.

Nice. The extra blowby probably just from new rings and should slow down as they seat

Some proper ducting for that little radiator should also help.

Looking good!
