The TDR guys came up with a pretty good head torquing technique that they say makes the head gaskets stronger/last longer.. Instead of the 90 ft/lbs then 1/4 turn that the manual asks for (which is a hell of a lot of torque, I used a 3' extension), simply 125 ft/lbs and that's it. Less torque actually! But the same bolt pattern.. Here is the torquing technique. This is a 6 cyl but it is the same minus two cyls of course...

charles, don't think anyone is questioning whether you can have a powerful or dependable engine. Seems like that went out the window back in the 50s??

I also agree about turbos.. My DDer is an older Saab 9000 turbo, reliable and powerful, I don't think they would put powerful engines in cars if they were unreliable??
