alright guys. i was checking fjdistributors for a gasket set for my motor.
it seems the the y8 set is $3.50 more.
now why is it more? is there something it has that the others dont?
im asking this because i have a A6 block and will be putting a Y8 head on it.
so i dont really know what kit to get. seems that something is different but i dont know what it is.
any help would be awesome. i pmed fj on here and nothing back. so i thought i would just ask

no, not the only difference

the intake gasket is different, vtec solenoid of course

the headgasket on a y8 is thinner

the exhaust gasket has slightly bigger ports cut


match the head. that is where the more important gaskets go anyway

thanks man. i think i might just end up getting a ebay y8 gasket set since fj is backordered on all of them.
and get a good head gasket from the parts store. ive never had good luck with the HG from ebay. but have used there kits before with no problems.

Ive had great luck with ebay headgaskets

copper spray on both sides, and make sure you use new head bolts/studs

everyone i have used i had to replace within 1k miles. haha. so id rather get a felpro personaly. only had good luck with them so il stick with them. and i never have copper sprayed a HG so idk if the ebay one would be alright if i did but il be trailoring the car 5 hours to get tuned as soon as its back together at that point and i dont wanna take the change of the HG going bad and being screwed
and shoot my arp's have been re-trqed like 14 times haha and there still awesome with 23psi on this setup

Yeah, I'd not run an ebay or FJT HG from those kits on any boosted setu. Fel-Pro or OEM FTW!

***BTW, I've got a stock Z6 in my DD running an ebay HG for near 10k miles now. No problems, since it's not seeing boost. LOL!***
