Yeah my buddies uses cometic in all of his v8's he builds. I also used one in my srt4 with arp head studs. Worked great.

I would never use a copper head gasket on anything , Yes o-rings are a pain but back in the day a necessary have to especially with Nitrous
Neither are needed on any of the Focus Engines

I used to use piano wire of the appropriate size on my big-block Mopar. A biatch to form around the receiver groove, but it won't leak.
I'm using Cometic on my V-8 race car. This is an application where the time tested way around really high compression (13.2:1+) was to install an extra head bolt. Cometic does the job without this hassle.

For copper o-ring as a head gasket, the machine shop will cut the block to allow for the copper o-ring to be insterded but when it's cold out copper will leak. Also it can work great or give you issues.
The head gasket that I'm using is a mls cometic head gasket.
As of right now the CP pistons and head gasket will take about a month to make. This is the busy time for both company's.

|turbosvtfocus04||Thanks. But if I go o-ring for the head. I can't daily drive the car. That's strictly only for racing. I like to drive it on the street too.|

depending on how far north youre going, o-rings may be in order for the head. Thats still uncharted territory.
Good Luck! Can't wait to see the numbers.
What to look forward to:

The block is strong, I dont know if I've ever heard of any one cracking the block without the rods being the cause. I think 600whp has been done, if I'm not mistaken. Thats like 700 at the crank.
