Hotside Gaskets..

I have it apart for some maintenance. I've been using the gaskets that came with the kit. They have a perforated metal outer with an almost plaster like filler in the middle. They seal great but seem to only have a few reuses on them before they fall apart.

My Turbos came with some thin stainless steel gaskets but I feel that they won't compensate for any irregularities in flatness and might leak, but I haven't tried them. Then there's copper and graphite..

What do you like?

All I've ever used is the "ultra copper". It's cheap, durable when surfaces have been prepped, and a tube of it goes a long way.

For everything that is worthwhile, there is a counterfeit.

Yeah I thought about it. It's nice to just throw in a cheap gasket without messing around with goop too.

Stainless with goop. I don't want any chance of the O2's seeing fresh air.
