I've seen a few leak. No idea if that's a fluke or representative of common problems.

What fuel are you going to running on? You can do 400whp or very close to that with a 68HTA. On 91 it takes a lot more turbo!

Just be aware that terms like 400whp, reliable and daily-driver don't easily fit into the same sentence.
Obligatory 'build thread'
Terrible things like this don't happen where I come from. Other terrible things happen instead.
