IF your blowin gaskets like that something is wrong !! I have run them for years without issue.

blowin gaskets is usually a tune issue, putting in a stronger gasket is just gonna make it worse. are you SURE your heads are FLAT??

HGs are a fuse.. you use too big of a fuse you end up with a fire.


NEVER do business with Sam Rivera AKA Sam Wilson.

I did put a straight edge on it and it looked to be pretty true... might send them out just to be on the safe side.
