Sucking oil into the booster...prol ly isn't a good idea. Lots of vacuum pedals for sale on the other board, or you could have posted looking for one on here. Vendors sell a vacuum block to replace the one over the TB for the vacuum conversion.

Some of the ARP studs don't sit correctly and need extra washers for proper clamping force. Not sure if that applies to your setup.

Jeremy might be correct. I had a helluva time getting the air out of mine. Throw a pan under the rad and let it burp itself.

Check the DP for oil. Maybe the turbo is leaking. When the DP gets warm it'll start burning off.

If you need help wrenching on it, I'm a phone call away.

Are you sure the headgaskets are intact?

Post for a good used one. Would cost you more to fix the one you have.

Make it work for what YOU want. I did my shop up the way I wanted. If it serves its purpose for you, then go for it!

That's disgustingly clean. You can resize pics in Win 10.

I know one Toronto member that went into the 9's on race gas and 83's that went over 100% and melted the engine down. My 6.7 run I was well into 90% IDC. I swapped to 80's in case I wanted to run quicker without engine damage. With the gazillions of runs I made, I never lost a set of head gaskets to a lean condition...an d it wasn't luck. Takes 680 to the back tire with a TR weighing in at 3500 on a 1.48 launch to crack the 9's.

IDC dropped when I went to 80's. Nothing theoretical about it. 50's, 60's and 80's were new when I bought them. Anyone that knows me knows I always go above and beyond for fueling and going over every run on PL for anomalies. Eric mentioned on his website years ago that 60's and race gas would get you close to a mid 10 horsepower level. I have this habit of listening to the very best.
