when you installed the thermostat did you do it such that the air-leak hole was at the 12-o-clock position? ^This. Plus when filling with coolant you should remove the 10mm bleeder screw in the intake manifold above the coolant inlet. If you do this, and the Tstat is oriented correctly, you should ...

I was told that you should RE-Torque your ARP headstuds after putting some miles on them.

True??

Just wondering how many miles you guys usually do it at? its generally said to re-torque them at 500 miles or so...but im still curious what the KA guys do it at..if theres any difference at all
