16lbs unless you are using copper head gaskets - they don't seem to do as good a job of sealing water. I think I used a 10lb with copper.

I run copper head gaskets. NEVER have leaked.....not once....They won't leak if you prep them correctly

16 lbs is right for most applications. Sometime with copper head gaskets a 7 lbs is recommend. I see no reason a drag car would ever need more then 16lbs.


Meziere Tech.
Make sure your water pump is on whenever you check your coolant level.
