the LS7 fiero has yet to kill one....

also, Joseph Upson on 60V6 has one attached to his turbo/stroked 3900 and has yet to have any problems with it after replacing the factory dual-mass clutch setup. i believe he has ran up to 8PSI so far.

fieros, which aren't as light as they look, have pushed up to 600 HP through them, and the only ones that have broken are ones where something was made wrong.

the only vehicle where i saw specific mention of that was the LS7 build, and these days, cryo treating is getting cheap.

Is it foolish to just assume that when you've found a blown gasket, that you've found the problem? There are after all two head gaskets on my motor...
