Pulled The Heads, Manifolds,and Intake This Morning Pulled The Bad Plg Out And The Only Place I Can See That Water Can Get In Is The Head Gasket. Ill Pick Up My Parts When I Go To La Next Wed. Put It All Back Together And See If That Works. I Hope I Do Not Have To Pull The Motor. I Am Also Hoping That I Should Be Close To 500hp With The Upgrades. If This Works See All Of You On Lake Travis.

Did you pressure check the headers/manifolds along with the heads. What about a leaking/cracked alignment pin on the header?

I went to the April run and burned up a motor. I just got the heads / pistons in today so if all goes well, I'll make it next week. You'll recognize me, the slowest scarab on the lake.. no way am I going to burn up another motor this time!
