Compression is 95lbs per cylinder. cam is a custom blower cam 650 lift not sure duration don't have spec sheet now, 114 separation. 400 turbo, 456 gear. I am stumped I don't want to run it and break any rings or worse. I NEED HELP Why all the pressure. Engine runs great doesn't smoke was broken in properly, plugs look OK still a little lean with 90 jets in back and 86 in front.
Are you positive you have "chrome moly" rings and not moly inlay or plasma moly rings or some other type of ring material?
In any event, upside down second rings will pump the crankcase nice and full of pressure.
