    From my understanding the aluminum heads melt around 2000 degrees F.

    I havent found whats an OK target peak temp, but waiting for my upstream o2 sensor to show up as i have seen peak temps around 1500-1600 F, 500 degrees short of melting your heads cant be good. Anyone else have any ideas???
