You are correct sir! Not even sure how I did it but the plan is to tap for 1/8" NPT and screw in a hose nipple. $1.58 hopefully instead of $161.00. I ran it about 15 mins, couldn't see the timing mark, need to mark it with some white out or something, I tried a little orange paint but couldn't see it. It was also 11:30 and I was very tired and drained. Fingers crossed I'll drive it home tonight. Ported head, big valves and Sooper bitchen flywheel let's it rev quite freely, almost 16 valve like.

Edit, one fuel pump is also so quiet I didn't hear it running, only knew it was working because the new fuel pressure gauge is also working.

First autocross of the year, this was the last run, if I hadn't biffed at the last sweeper it would have been my best. I got all the way home and blew the head gasket 1 light from my neighborhood, boost spiked past where I had the tune set so the head's coming off in a day or 2.



Edit: after checking the results I hit 3 cones on that run.
Here's my best time, I beat 2) 2020 Supra's one in both pax and raw time and one in pax, we switched places, our raw time were .09 seconds difference.

What is the compression difference using stock vs thicker gasket?

Unsure of your question, I now has B23ET pistons and RSI rods and my man took some meat out around the over size intake valves. I did not CC the head, but it was an uncut jy 530, so I was running a stock Elring gasket.

Ok. Thought you were running a thicker gasket.

I was, before I got the dished pistons, but I couldn't keep the coolant out of the oil. It ran well, similar to how it runs now just kept getting the milkshake.
