Teardown of this 496 BBC to diagnose high oil consumption, lack of power and an overheating issue. Engine has less than 2k miles on it. Knowing the source of the machine work, I'm not suprised by what you see here. Improper honing technique meant this engine wasn't going to stay sealed for very long, and this thing was pumping oil like crazy, despite the fact it has Gapless secondary rings in it. Despite being done on nice new machines, and the use of a torque plate, it still takes a SKILLED machinist to do the work properly. Unfortunately for the inexperienced, shiny surfaces mean it must be good when it's really the subsurface that is important.
