Thanks for the tip, I put the silicone tube without the lip and it does seem to fit better, I will run the engine and see how it runs. I was having issues with the original seal with lip that came with the engine.

Thanks again, Jason.

Thanks Jason.
Use OFNA 51997 exhaust gasket for nova based header.

Michael,
There is nothing special when changing crankcases, the JL2 and the JL EVO 3 had the same crankcase, I did not understand regarding your question about the metal shaving, on the piston ?

How was the Nats? I called your shop, but you and your team was at the race. How did your drivers end up?

Thanks Jason.
