and lets talk about this sealant. your 'hot rodder' guy used it as a header gasket!?!? Wooo-boy. I'm not too sure 'bout that one. Hopefully it was a emergency repair and has replaced it since.?? (I'm also the Director of the Florida LX Club... Chargers, Magnums (mine), 300's, Challengers)
Nope he actuallly used the stuff a his gasket for perm, he couldnt get the machine shop to cut him the thickness of copper he wanted in time for some big race so he went to our supply wall and helped himself.
Still works just fine and dandy to this day not one black mark and he runs his stuff rich as can be so you would be able to spot a leak a mile away.

It looks heavy untill you get close then you can see the work.
Ever since I started the business I havent had time to go racing ( wife still drives it ocassionally though ) every time I drive it I get in trouble, LOL!
I still cant get the car to launch straight, once the wheels come up it pulls hard to the left.
