Looking forward to Spring....... January 31, 2010
Dear ,
I am not sure about you but I am really looking forward to spring getting here!  We had a brief reprieve from the sub freezing temps, and the mid 30s felt like low 60s.  Hopefully it will get here sooner than later.
We are still working on a few new products that will be released in the next newsletter.  We are also still working on Michelle Moretti's 1975 TA.  The cage is almost complete and we should be ready to paint the front frame, firewall and cage by weeks end.  At that point we can start to reassemble.  The car is coming along nicely.  I hope to post some updates to Michelle's web page in the next few dsys. 
Take care and stay warm!

Big Bore Head Gaskets for MR-1A blocks

TIP Head Gasket water jacket alignmentWe are please to announce the release of our new head gaskets specifically designed for the MR-1A aluminum blocks.  If you have built a few aluminum blocks like we have, you know that there are areas that could be improved upon with respect to the standard gaskets that are curently available.  That's why we decided to make our own!
While this gasket was specifically designed for the MR-1A blocks, it can be used on any Pontiac block that has the standard water jacket locations or on a dry decked block.  We have tested our head gasket on both cast iron and aluminum blocks.  Power levels from 450 horse up to 900 naturally aspirated horsepower were tested.  We have even tested the gasket on an 1100 hp blower application as well with fantastic results.  
The gaskets are .041 thick and come in a 4.385 bore size.  They also feature a stainless steel firing ring as well.  Keep in mind that we do not recommend boring your MR-1A out past 4.350.  Gaskets are sold individually and are available now at $45.00 each plus shipping.  We hope to have our online store updated shortly with this great new product!
