I was gonna say. No friggin way that head gasket is leaking again. Brand new Ford racing head. New Ford head gasket, I checked the block. Deck is flat . Torqued the ARP's down to spec. And double , triple checked.. had to be somthing like a valve cover gasket. Now turn up the boost. Oh and the last TO bearing. Came apart in 2 pieces. Actually separated , the spring and bearing surface from the hydraulic part. At a red light. Stalled the engine, had to use the starter to get going and speed match , shift all the way home. Great fun , on a two lane highway following a school bus home. Lots of stops.
