I agree with Chris; it shouldn't be a problem with the copper head gasket. Something in the cooling system isn't flowing well. Maybe the water pump impeller is bad, or the radiator is plugged. Or, the thermostat isn't opening fully (or even a slipping water pump belt). Lots of things you can check here.

I'm curious about the gasket you installed. Was it just a plain copper gasket? Or was it installed in conjunction with a stock head gasket. Do you know the thickness of it? What about the cost?

: I just installed (2 months ago) a AA copper head gasket and am running 10 psi of boost and noticed that when Im in traffic the needel on my temp gauge starts moving slowly towards the red zone and when I rev the engine it goes back to the middle!! is this normal ? I know in mustangs that this happens but in BMW"s
