    This one relies on crappy 54 year old analog acquisition and logging. My brain.

    This sounds like a job for DAQ! Data Acquisitions System at your service... but then again that would clutter your engine bay with those pesky non-period correct sensors.

    I usually forget to turn on the camera...or it's too blurry to see anything useful.

    An advantage to LSR - more time to look at the gages after you're done shifting (though I still sometimes for get to look). A camera mount pointed at the gages would be a good thing......

    I don't really know, I never remember to look at the boost gauge! too much else going on when the hammer is down....

    I can't remember if you ever said how much boost you are running, Jim.

    K&W Copper Cote and similar products are REALLY good stuff. I've used it extensively for years with great luck.

    There's a reputable machinist around here who uses that spray copper on head gaskets. Yes, I know you're supposed to put them on dry, but it works for him... and you know what, I've had a few different engine combos that seep oil between the head and block when using aluminum heads - and the engines HE puts together don't do that.

    Not that a little copper spray will make up for heads that aren't quite perfectly straight, but apparently it doesn't hurt.

    The main thing I want is to have it work....without going nuts spending money. So far, it works with the stock gaskets. It's not perfect, and it could get worse over time. I doubt my cylinder pressure is really much higher than yours, after all I get away with running pump gas.

    I'm looking into modern gasket designs. Although the felpro blue is a modern gasket design, compared to what they used original (steel shim).

    I know this would be modern tech, but have you considered an MLS style gasket? The multi layer steel better supports the entire head surface from bolt to bolt. I had some issues with the Fel-Pro blues as I raised the compression over time. The Cometic's solved that and I'm at 12:1 static now on the 598". I suspect your cylinder pressure under boost is likely quite a bit higher than mine making the issue worse. with thin decks. FelPro now offers an MLS as well if that is your brand prefernce.

    Most of these gasket materials and technologies weren't around in the mid-sixties anyway so I think you'd be ideologically safe?

    Ooof, the Buick ones are $80 more per set.

    I'm not worried, Jim's about 2000 miles away.
