How many retards (other than me) run 8800-up rpms
And did not use head studs or block guard? What where the results after 10-20hrs?
I am "pushing water" again but this time it's the ski and not a 4 wheeled toy that was over-sprayed on the dyno
Since the head is coming off, it will be replaced with a 07 head that's on it's way to slow91 for some of his port-magic, and a new cam and set of head studs with a new gasket are sitting in my box along with the rockershaft bolts and a block guard. I have had this stuff for some time now but was holding out until I had this head ported.
I already know the specifics of using the studs and the clearance issue at the valve cover, re-torque x2 etc. I just wanted to know if anyone has ever gotten away with this on stock head bolts or am I the only retard? I feel sofa king we todd it

seems like the next place to go looking for restriction. When the boost pressure drops way down and the power goes up u know u got it right with the air flow....

Running up on the rev limiter can pop a head gasket quick, too.
