Well from the begining. I did the test with hpop from 65 roll on up to 85 with IPR pressure of 1600 and DC of 90%. So I wanted to make sure that nothing was leaking in the head. I pressurized the heads by removing the hoses for the HPOP pump and plugged both ends off. then installed a QD in the head and pressurized the heads with a hydraulic pump. I pump it up to 3000psi and it will fall to about 500ish or so. I removed all of the injectors thinking that one of the o-rings might be bad, however none of the oil o-rings looked bad. #6 had a bad lower o-ring. By the way all were replaced with new Alliant kits. Also when I pressurized the heads I didn't see or hear anything in the valve train. I had the valve covers off and didn't see any excess oil anywhere. Is there a place inside that I can not find. Also is it possible for the injectors to somehow bypass oil with out being told to fire?

Any input or thoughts as to where else I can check I would appreciate it. Thanks Dave

Hangdog recently posted some results he got when pressure testing the heads and the rate they would leakdown.

How long did it take to leak down to 500#?
I honestly don't remember, I would say a couple minutes or so any ways but that is just off the top of my head. Is there a rate that it should bleed off at?

Thanks that is an interesting read. I will have to get in touch with him to see if he came up with anything else.

Just as a reference my injectors are stock with 135K on them.

Thanks Dave

I'd have to find my results, but mine leaked down from 3000 to about 500 in a "few" minutes. I was thinking around 5 minutes. The rate was similar with my 13x,xxx stock injectors and my newly built stage 2's.
