Yeah you’re right. I was looking at the glass 1/2 empty. I’m happy with the glass 1/2 full now.
I put mine on in case I ever ran 1/4 mile. But I've only run 1/8th mile and never needed to pull it.Thanks guys. It’s a rigid ride all dressed up with no place to go. Lol
9-7 to 1 compression doesn’t need a parachute. Unless there is boost.
Good idea Vall. Next time I go to the store I’ll buy a set.I take it your studs don't have an allen socket head to allow you to remove them easily Mario? Might be worthwhile to see if your local hardware store has any and swap them out for next time. Mine have allen heads and I've had to remove them to get valve covers off before too.
I’ll check that stuff out. Thanks Steve. Permatex black is normally a sure thing so I don’t know what happened with that corner leak. If what I did leaks again I will order that stuff.Mario, have you ever tried "Right Stuff" sealant from Permatex? It comes in black, quick setting, and gray, longer setting time. It's a bit more expensive than the regular but it works!!
Valve cover studs are great especially if your using spacers like i needed to use. I got these studs and nuts off of boltdepot.com for pretty cheap they have the allen head to run them in.My Edelbrock VJ heads are machined flat too. I’m gonna take Valls advice and buy Allen head 1/4 in studs. Go figure I couldn’t get the valve cover off but I had a corner seepage. Crazy.
I think all the good quality aftermarket aluminum heads have this feature. My Dart SHP heads are done the same.Great looking car, that is one nice looking body style, the grill in them makes the car I think. The Right Stuff is good stuff but you'll need a 4 ft pry bar to get them off. That's one thing I liked about the BBC after market heads that were machined flat and raised where the VC goes on. I guess they do the same on the SBC too. I hate oil leaks and header leaks.
Did youi wrap them with the steel wool and screens with the kit they sell or did you use them as is out of the box?That's a great price Mario, hope one of the members realizes it and grabs them. I've got the 3" in my Willys headers and the 3 1/2" in the 53 headers and love them.
yeah I would like to hear them too. I have ideas on the street version. They actually sell the 2 disk which is more for drags. I may spring for that one. See how they treat the return.Great idea to have a quiet, loud and open header option. I bet it would make it nice on long drives to pop in the capped off set and then when you get into town switch them out. Interested to hear the tone difference
