Hi, First Post, top marks on the site, this is the first time i've not been able to find an answer to my query!!
I've got a Z20LET gasket for my cav turbo as it was recomeded to me, because its steel. I've done a search, rung some companys, etc about fitting it and i'm getting mixed results. some say chuck it on it'l be fine, and some say its needs modding. diffrent mods have also been mentioned to do with rivets (drill 3 leave one near dipstick), thickness (you make 1 gasket from 2), and to do with how wide coolant channels are.
When i offer it to my head to check for allignment (turning gasket upsidedown), some of the holes dont line up. Is this to do with early/late engines or are they the same?????
I've read some prev therads on this site about this topic and can't make my mind up. please can you help by saying if yes this is a good gasket for my engine, or no stay well clear. any help muchly appreciated.
