My opinion is that I wouldn't add spray to a motor that has known head sealing issues.

But it Wouldnt be a bad idea if you got the block timeserted and replaced the gaskets first.(im assuming it would be fine then) Then i wouldnt be worried as much

Timeserts just make the bolt bigger it doesn't fix the problem.

So your saying it wouldnt help? That leaving it stock is just as good as the timeserted? I thought when you timeserted a block it would Lower the chance of blowing your HG's by Alot. (lifting the heads)

I was thinking that maybe if you put a shot on a bone stock setup(not timeserted) That you would have a high chance of lifting the heads. But if you had it timeserted you would have less chance of lifting the heads. I was pretty sure it would help......:hmm:. Will it help?

All i know is....I wouldnt put a shot on my car without timeserting the block..

Using nitrous in a Northstar is like juicing a racehorse. It's a crime against nature.
