    Miles, What specifically are you using? Red liquid high strength Loctite (271) or Red Mopar gel anaerobic form-a-gasket. Todd

    If I'm not mistaken, it's widely used in Canada and they don't have any problems with it.

    Just checked out your cage install page. Phenomenal! I wish I had seen this before my cage install, would have gone a lot smoother. Don't know if there's a better laid out page anywhere online. Great write-up. \m/

    Hey there! Just rescued one 89 Shelby Daytona- already had SRT rims and poly bushings, all corners. Will be pretty much following you lead, aiming to setup the 8-valver like you had it. Feel free to send me any links or videos of how it is done (pushing the 8v). Already sent my 2-piece int to MPG mike for work and thermo- coating on lower. Soon will have to start the big valve head before new years. Sticking with the factory head/block, until the new head is done. (after new years)
    Years ago i followed your buildup, but forgot the webpage explaining what was done in stages. I do recall you using a hogged/welded TBI manifold, although i'll stick with a ported stocker for my power levels. Is the coolant mod needed under 380hp? Thanks again!

    Hey JT, is anything being done about updating some of the How-To pages in the knowledge center? I'm interested in the L-Body digi-dash install and some others for when I get my Omni paid off and get it back from Cindy. I tried posting in the Board Discussion but I'm blocked for some reason :/

About BadAssPerformance
Hello Everybody! My name is Jason Trotter, although most know me as JT or BadAssPerformance.

I've had my Shelby Z since '94, a couple '87 CSX's and shadows since then, and my first mopar was an '86 EFI Lancer I got in '92, but have been a mopar enthusiast long before that. Late model turbo mopars are my main passion, but one of my dreams is to have a twin turbo '71 Cuda!

I am also the SDAC-Chicago president, long time SDAC National member, and gladly contributing to the staff.
