Also I'm concerned with oil consumption with the 427 small block? Also are there any issues with running one of these darts locks on the street
milodon makes a nice oil pan that utilizes every bolt and clears the crank/rods.
if proper rings/honing procedures are used, oil consumption should be no higher than any other small block of similar configuration (hot street use, drag race, circle track etc.)
not sure which dart block they are using, but there should be no issue using any quality block from dart, world, etc.
