      Awesome, I always like the 8v builds. I've got a pretty stout ABA (all things considered), every few months I kick around the idea of building it further; posts like these don't help! Serious though,...

      I would say google search for an in-depth technical answer; in short... it removes oil from the crankshaft.
      It's been a while, don't quote me on this, but IIRC a 5-7% gain in power could be achieved...

      Hi, Joe Pinto (race-shop joe) did those cylinder heads; my car was just the extremely abused guinea pig.
      That #001 cylinder head was badass and everything about it was Joe's work...

      Aftermarket piston companies usually cut the valve pockets with enough clearance to use 12-13mm lift camshafts; they do this without the customer even asking.

      SCE Gaskets...

      SCE Gaskets has 84mm copper gaskets, they're expensive and require o-rings... but avialable.
      Then you've got Cometic, no VR6 products available but do offer a custom order service.

      Cool, maybe get a few more full 1/4 mile passes before the next change?
      Either way, interested to see what the truck does next...
