The biggest mistake I see people make when I see this and I have seen it a lot is they do head work , porting , surface etc and dont pull the oil passage plugs out and clean the head throughly and there is 6 plugs to pull out of you cannot clean the head throughly

Actually to prime the oil pump took a bit longer than I expected, it is a good possibility, the head may be saved not sure about the cams though.

Quick question, after installing a Torsen and having the 2 front tires in the air if you spin one manually (in neutral), does the other wheel turns in the opposite direction or they both move freely regardless like an open diff. Read a bunch and still not sure, it should work as an open diff until torque is applied unless preloaded (shimming)?
