I just turbo'd my 2000 Honda civic. It has a D16Y7 engine with the Y8 intake manifold. I am using a y8 gasket, but I am getting a significant leak near the top of the manifold. I've replaced the gasket and the same thing happens. Which gasket do you guys recommend?

UPDATE: I installed the y7 gasket, it's little thicker and it definitely helped the leak, but unfortunately it is still leaking a little. I am thinking the head might be warped and a thicker gasket might do the trick. It also appears that I have a small coolant leak as there is white smoke coming from the tailpipe. What do you think?

Nevermind. Apparently the injector breather holes weren't plugged when the manifold was swapped. Plugged them and that took care of the problem.
