i just broke a rod in my motor from detonation and the head gasket lived..
I had those gaskets....I blew 4 fire rings and burned them behind all 8 fire rings really bad....

This was with a clean deck, Arp head studs, and cleaned up heads(.008 surface pass). I guess the deck on stock heads cant handle the boost i was throwing at them...Im gonn try the 8548-pt2's next time. i have heard good things about them.

Good job though!
