  2. I think you have to look at where the tracks are Clive!
  3. I resurfaced the head, it was warped. Looking at the EFI to see if it is leaning out too much.
  4. Sorry to ask such a stupid question, I googled right after I posted. I am installing a metal head gasket in an F54/flattops/N47 that has popped twice at the track. I know nothing of these two products, I will do some research and decide which to use. Thanks!
  5. What is copper spray? TonyD, are you saying use Hylomar on the metal head gasket?
