    you might want to stay on the road. Sounds great wish my car could do that, maybe later.

    glad you got the problems fixed.

    I ordered a 45* elbow, but needed a 90*. Until I can scrape up more funds, this will have to do.

    Thanks... tails are now gone. It sounds a little meatier now, but not a big change. I had to baby it back to work though. Pouring down at the moment. Bald tires, big engine, and rain don't mix well. :rlaugh:

    :notnice: That's not good. Have you pulled the heads back off the engine yet? Mine was leaking in the middle. Not sure what that stuff is they space the metal gaskets with, but it failed miserably on both of mine. :bang: My engine builder said Cometic knew EXACTLY what he was talking about when he called in. He told me, they even said they were working on a fix for the problem, telling us it's fairly common. Sounds like the person you talked either didn't know anything, or I was lied to. :roll:

    So far the replacements are holding, but my builder coated the hell out of them. Feel free to point Cometic to this thread. I'll talk to them to back you up. Hell, even have a video of the leak. Watch the end of this: http://www.100mphclub.com/movies/331_idle.mov

    Good Luck and keep us all updated. Who knows if mine will start leaking again. :mad:

    How thick of a gasket do you have to use? We had a hard time finding another brand thick enough.

    off the top of my head i think its just a .040 gasket.. but it could be thicker
    i dont have to worry about compression a whole lot with my slightly under 9 to 1 compression...
    id like to talk to ur builder to see exactly what he did to the gaskets... i might try to reuse them

    http://www.100mphclub.com/dcr/ <---- my builder, Doug is a pretty good guy. Just really, busy. I'm sure he will be happy to talk to you about it. They have a Fox in the shop right now stroked with a Turbo. Has the exact same gaskets as mine. So they are a little worried. So far it's holding.

    talked to doug about it and he gave me step by step on how to prep the headgaskets and re-install them and he's talked me into giving the cometics another try...

    he's one hell of a nice guy
