Water doesnt compress and I've seen the result in XH six cylinders with a gut full of water (after the last floods in sydney) Conrods shaped like bananas!!!
Dont want to spoil your performance increase but BE AWARE
Just trying to help:thumbup:
I don't think Ultra Copper will do the job in this case. What is required is a sealant free of silicon compounds.botch said:Use stuff called ULTRA COPPER, buy it from most parts shops. Doesnt harm the sensors and use it just like silastic. Cool copper color too (daaa)
Thanks Pete I had no idea.... I'll look around for a different sealant.Aussie Pete said:

For those that have asked, any Si molecules that pass over the O2 sensor cause the sensor to lose its ability to sense oxygen. The result is one dud sensor. It takes an extremely small amount to cause this and things like sealing up a headlight can do the same thing!
I wonder how much the O2 sensor/s are for an EL 5.0 litre......?????
