    Trans cooler the way to go; i lost a built tranny because of a leak in the radiator. Water & anti freeze contaminated trans fluid; a dedicated trans cooler eliminates this and more efficient. pops

And there is possibility you are blowing flame off pistons.Your letting up would allow fuel and or spark to return to decent paremeters. Pinch plugs down 5k...

    oilers Looking Good ! Any Outstanding race engine on market has some sort of piston oiler; certainly can't hurt. Now just fasten the last two oilers and clean out the oil galley for chips and burs.I've found that heavy grease on drill bit acts as a good collector for aluminum chips. As if you...
