Took the dust shield off and she purrrrrrs. It is at least 2/3 quieter then my other motor, I am thinking the other one must have had a wild cam in it or something. I let it get to operating temp and it held about 20psi at Idle, 40 off idle. Changing the oil on Friday, and really banging out the body work to maybe paint before the Willy's reunion!
