Default second engine build, started last night

Hey guys, I just finished my 2nd forged bottom end build last night. Here are some details:

supertech pistons 9.5:1
manley rods
acl race bearings
boundary engineering stage 2 billet oil pump
ATI harmonic balancer
800cc deatchwerk injectors
valvejob/resurface for head
supertech dual valve springs
fab 9 turbo set up
garage star water pump pully
coolant reroute
6 speed paired with ACL clutch
etc. etc.

I had a little mishap with first start up last night, (I am an idiot and forgot to put in the stock oil pressure sending unit) so oil was just pouring out the side of the block while I had 0 oil pressure for about 20 seconds before I shut it off.

Everything was coated with the good assembly lube (the red stuff), especially the crank/rod bearings, so I'm hoping that everything will be okay.

I'm going to change the oil when I get home from work and go do some compression braking to seat the rings. I am so nervous!!

Looks nice.
Just threw in my engine and the vvt cam is leaking. So close yet so far away.
