ok kool...

So is the issue fixed cory or is still pushing exhaust into the coolant? Id recommend getting a new gasket and going with a set of studs. Like they said, might as well with such an expensive build. You get a much better clamping force with studs vs oem headbolts.

See if you cant find yourself a set of the GE studs or either that go with the mazworx ones since you get your gasket from them anyways. If your loosing pressure into the cooling system that will affect power somewhat as well. I definitely see 300+ coming from your build when you make the changes you want and get the cylinders sealed up.

hmm, so this latest dyno was with the "spaghetti" header?
probably confused the exhaust gasses on which way to go

A win is a win.

Every time I go to PIR I beat some exotic or expensive metal (and I'm terrible at drag racing). Sometimes they will come back later waving a timeslip in my face saying how fast they are.... that's not how drag racing works

That's the plan. New gaskets here and studs will arrive shortly. Hoping to participate at the next event at brainerd. Forum wars / import vs domestic on the 16

Nice job cory. I think you need jdm performance magnets next.
2011-07-08 01:13:02
Lol what magnets
2011-07-08 01:14:04
I think the jdm magnets align your muffler bearings.

Alright Cory that's enough. Any more progress and you are going to start converting Honda boiZ. Do you want to be responsible for that??
