Help and advise wanted with port matching heads to inlet manifold

Post by Twinturbotr7 » Wed May 15, 2019 2:25 pm

I would like some advice on port matching my heads to inlet manifolds , I assume you need to find the gasket you plan on using and do the port matching to that ,I was just going to go to the same internal size as the gasket I was going to use ?? I don’t suppose all gaskets are the same size ??so I will want to use that particular gasket from now on ? Also anyone out there got any preferences on inlet manifold gaskets ??? I was planning on Using some form of composite gasket as I assume there a better seal than the tin ones , am I also right in assuming there a bit thicker than the tin one ? I’m doing a turbo conversion and will be using composite head gaskets with Sd1 heads so I assume the thicker the head gasket the more the heads will separate at the valley thus needing a thicker composite inlet valley gasket to compensate ?

Thanks Nick

Only way to know is buy some and see how they fit on yours.
