    I have a GSR motor with a Skunk2 mani and a STR 68mm TB. What TB gasket do I need to get. Type R's are 67mm right.

    Let me know where to purchase also, THanks!!!!

    here's a shot in the dark because i haven't done this and i'm prolly wrong- but i would just buy the regular one and then trim it with a razor to fit the larger tb

    I think if I trimed my TB gasket 60mm to 68mm it would trim to much off and because it is already thin.

    i dont think its bored out. the wals are too thick for it to have been bored out, they would be super thin to bore from 62-67. its probably aftermarket, but it sure does look stock so i dunno.

    and sleeper, he said he HAD a 68 mm TB, not he WANTED one.

    Just use some gasket maker. I have an Erics racing 70mm TB, thats what they recomended to me. Just use a thin layer by applying with your finger. Put TB on, hand tight'n it, wait for gasket maker to semi-cure then tourqe TB down.
