Question Blew a head gasket??!!

Only spraying a 60 wet shot, one nozzel. Pretty sure I held it too long in forth trying to run down a turbo civic (embarassing as that is)

Any way melted the AFR 165 head to where it had to be welded so it got hot for some reason!!

So turns out I used the cheap fel pro's??
So I'm putting Cometic's on it, I'm fighting the urge to put another cam in it as the TF #1 is VERY streetable, thats what I want but it still falls on it's face at 5300-5400rpm, like the stock cam did at 5000

Any advice on a cam for my engine? (details in sig)
I like the trick flow, so I'm thinking about they're #2 cam.
#1= 221/225 @.050 .499/.510 with 1.6
#2= 224/232 "" .542/.563 ''''
both at 112 seperation. Anyone got any experience with these?

How much driveability you guys think I'll lose?
Any help appriecated!!

Did you have any provision to retard the timing when you sprayed?
Were you running a colder plug?

You do know that the Cometic gaskets require a certain finish to the deck & head surface to seal up correctly don't you?

Enter your engine specs and modifications at CamQuest.com and let the experts pick the best cam for your purposes.

Any time you change out a low end cam for a higher end cam you will lose power and some driveability on the lower end.
