It is true, many platforms suffer from high pressure clutches taking out thrust bearings. Most people have learned to re-wire the car to start without depressing the clutch, but there are still many out there learning their lesson.

I just like get your concept. But oil films are pretty good nowadays to fight these 'dry starts" and also oil pressure is reached within seconds throughout the entire engine.

I never wired my clutch switch in, so my car can start w/o clutch being depressed. Hmm

No modern oils have zinc or sulfur high pressure lubricants...They removed those compounds because they prematurely kill oxygen sensors and catalytic converters and since the federal government requires manufacturer's warranty their emissions equipment for 80,000 miles the manufacturers would rather it last for 80,000 miles instead of your engine..... which they only have to warranty for 36,000 miles.

Modern thin oils get to places a lot faster on a cold start yes. However tiny bits of bearing wear /clearance increase drastically reduces pressure since it is so thin....

Finally was able to find some arp studs in stock and ordered 4 sets. Fuel pumps are installed and ready to go. 450in tank and 750 inline, shouldn't have an issue with running out of pump. Injector maybe as I only have 1200's currently.
