I just buy products from heath, never read his stuff.
Looks like I am about to start.
I have herd heath likes to fill there high power blocks with block filler up to the bottom of the water pump inlet holes. I thought about adding some block filler (since I did build the engine up from a bare block in my living room) but didn't want to add another 30-50lb of weight to the engine. I would rather have 30-50lb more load capacity or get up a mountian that much sooner.
I have herd the 6.5T doesn't do well on water methanol. Only thing I can think of is there timing could be too far advanced on a stock engine. Heaths 2bar blown diesel could be running less timing than a normal engine.
