what headgasket should i use 4 a ls-vtec turbo?
i plan to make about 400hp
yup, there are aslo aftermarket thicker headgaskets around also. Do a search and you should find them.
indeed. stock or thicker aftermarket.
just a note, the stock Honda gaskets are very well made and remember that if you go thicker you might change your compression a little
I say oem hg.
has any of u guys made over 350hp with oem headgasket?
not personally but it's been done many times.........if you go aftermarket you dont have to go thicker Greddy[I think] makes stock size gaskets,thicker is not always better just more gasket area to fail,if you are really worried some people have O ringed 4 cyl's but it's a pretty involved process for really extreme use
Since you have balls posting a post on how much we are posting on hp, post some Hp figures yourself, if your 81mm then stick wtih oem. if not then go larger, if you need a larger bore than do a search online.
didn t mean to hurt ur feelings
