is any one doing it and how does it work for ya, are they safe?
yes!! I run a MSD digital 6 plus. it has a timing retard . when you pull timing while on the 2 step it builds even more boost.I always see them, basically it allows you to build boost while staging right??
I wonder if it will work on a blown car
I imagine the exhaust pressures and temps seen on the two step is what's blowing out the header gasket. What many of us are running is simply a thin coat of high temp silicone and your not likely to be able to blow anything out afterwards.Right, its rich to start with thats why I was figuring it. Its a pony down kit, single turbo passenger side. First time port 4 blew, second time new remflex gasket in place 3 and 4 blew out. Replaced them, seen up to 12 psi quite a few times now with no problems. Two step saw about 5-7 psi, blows out after about 4 seconds while on the two step. Sorry to kinda hi jack the thread but I figured it would be a good spot to question it without making a new thread.
yep. Thats what I run NO gaskets and just a thin coat of the copper stuff. works great. I can make 10 psi on the 2 step and they dont leak.I imagine the exhaust pressures and temps seen on the two step is what's blowing out the header gasket.

Yeah I had to run both copper gaskets and the RTV due to warped flanges. Used the RTV on both sides of the copper gasket. It sealed them until I got them fixed. Once fixed tho RTV was all that was needed.Well, I did try the rtv twice both times they leaked. Come to find out my headers were warped pretty bad(fixed now) but I had already invested in the remflex gaskets which have a warrenty so they just sent me another set. Iam just going to drive it for awhile before I take it back apart. Dont need to be launching on the two step with 28 spline mosers anyways. I have read about using copper gaskets AND copper rtv, either of you guys ever run that setup? RTV makes quite the mess thats for sure, Firgured I could put the rtv on the head, put rtv on the other side of the gasket and hold it in place with a set of studs.
I REALLY REALLY would NOT suggest it !! lmao.Got ya, maybe Ill give it a shot them. Hmmm, maybe I should just put a 7.5 in with stock axles! Screw 33's and a spool! haha
My whole car is "asking for troubble" un tuned, stock t-5, 7.5 rear end launching with full boost on slicks. lol so ya Im asking for it lolI havent had any problems with the copper gaskets. But i have to ask why you guys are out beating on your cars when they havent been tuned yet? That just doesnt make any sense and its asking for trouble
