Good to know. :)

So, I'm looking into the Remflex gasket, but can't tell what it's made out of. If I need to trim it slightly to open it up to fit the ports (since the head has been P&P), will that be doable? Or is...

I took a look at that gasket just last night. :D
I think I would have sent for it if it wasn't some special order they'd have to do, and that it's a good $15 more than the Mr. Gasket (which works...

So, had an interesting issue yesterday. My second package of install goodies showed up from Summit, along with my Mr. Gasket 260.

Agreed. 18 advance is a lot.
Mine was custom curved by DUI for my engine and they said it was still "pretty" close to the stock curve they put on them. They said to set my base timing at 12...

Me too fljab, especially since I didn't even know they offset piston pins, so it really caught me off guard, long after they'd been selected, balanced, installed, etc. So, I'm glad there wasn't an...

Otherwise, yes, the two...
