    ive heard this to be done before, has anyone out there heard about it?

    they say you tkae the 3 layer gasket, and take it apart and use 1.

    more details would be nice and helpful. thanks in advance

    why would you want to bust up a head gasket???
    I don't see how you would get more power or anything really.

    Ha! I love it. Noob waits one hour for an answer to a question he answered in his own post, doesn't get any responses, so this site sucks. Truly awesome.

    An hour, a day, point is, you answered your own question and wonder why no one else wants to repeat your answer. You can name call all you want, but your behavior speaks louder than any insult.

    about 12 hours. and theres probably good reason you got banned, post your previous usernames^_^

    but ripping apart a head gasket to try to make it to work as a single layer.. just buy a single layer to begin with. I don't even think the three pieces are supposed to be separated, and the compression bump it MINIMAL, and will yield no noticeable gains other than having to replace your gasket sooner.

    you would gain about 90hp if you used more head gaskets. I used 3 on my last build and o my god the dyno numbers were great!

    Replacing the head gasket with copper gasket spray works much better. You get get mad gains.






    FYI its not true

    Regardless of what happened, you don't tell the members of the site that they "fucking suck", I mean, why should we help you now? Anyway, you should go ask 4chan for help, I'm sure they'd love you.

    Even though we suck apparently, I'll say this. I heard once of a guy who didn't use a gasket at all and just put head gasket sealer in his oil. Amazing results.

    put a cork head gasket, that'll work best on it

    if not, a piece of cardboard. just be sure to edge it up real close on the cylinders
