Currently self employed mechanic Making 3 times what I made before. I only put this up to say yes I to have been turning wrenches for a while . But we all make mistakes from time to time. Like when I was 22 and asked my step dad to torque my 455 heads on my 450 hp 67 Firebird . He jumped up on the car and wrenched the first bolt to 150 ft lbs needless to say my engine didnt last to long .
I use ARP studs, torqued to 105lbs. cars makes 1000bhp and only torqued it once. I use a thick AJUSA head gasket which can be purchased from Bushur, it's very durable. The head is also ringed, which helps when your running 35+ psi.Of course overheating and detonation can blow any motor.
i used a thick hks metal gasket, it had a black coating
i didnt spray it with anything???
How much boost are you running?
i used a hks head gasket
and i had a new stage 5 bj head

i see most of you guys do it in 3 steps, do you think that will be a problem
