    Ive heard of priority main oil systems but after seeing this a Caddys is a giant improvement ..

    From Engine Builders Magazine

    The 429 and 460 do not incorporate priority main oiling. Oil is pumped from the oil pan through the oil filter and into the front main galley of the block where the front main journal and front cam journal are pressurized. From there, oil enters the passenger side lifter valley then to the drivers side lifter valley and then branches down the rest of the camshaft journals and finally to the rest of the main journals.

    So how do they survive? Do they melt down and nobody is saying anything, not even the mags? Or do we need to go to their sites?
