383 Chevrolet Low-Stress Breeak-In on Simtester
This is a 383 Chevy stroker motor that was going into an off-road pre-runner, here it is getting a low-stress break-in on my Simtester. The engine runs for about 40 minutes as I will typically see a 2-4 amp decrease in drive motor amperage and a 2-5 rpm increase. Both of these numbers represent a decrease in friction as the engine breaks-in.

Chevy Short Block Sim Test
This a Sim Test of a SBC without the heads. Some customers Like to put their own heads on. About the only thing one can check here is oil pressure, and to make sure everything is moving correctly. This customer was a nickle & dimer. This short block, I believe was for a dirt track car; The customer didn't even want main studs. It's kind of cool to see the pistons move here.
