Not for Long.

I was peaking 14-15psi of boost, the composite head gasket did not like that.

Back apart for ARP studs and a Cometic multi layer steel head gasket.

And It needs a few more upgrades.

The head gasket went because it was pinging so badly. It was loud in the video, which means it must have been super loud in person.

Seriously, put a $10 FelPro 8993 back in until that's fixed. Running it like that with studs and an MLS gasket will likely compress the rods or worse. I'd return the studs too if they're not the undercut type. The head and deck often aren't rigid enough to take advantage of straight-shank studs and sometimes they'll lead to a crushed gasket.

You'll know your tune is pretty safe when a stock head gasket and bolts are holding down 400hp+.
