    Use the PI gaskets and only put the silcion the amount and where it shows in the pictures! I have had mine on for about 3 months now and 1000 miles! no leaks or anything bad yet!

    well do it again! you will have much more problems with the NPI gaskets and silicon everywhere where as with the PIs you just have to use a little bit of silicon! what type of silicon did you use?

    are you doing stock PI cams? If so the springs will hold the abuse, but your dead spot will be gone! it should pull all the way to 5800 with the cams
