Various Bores & Thicknesses
* Sold Individually, you must order 2 per engine *
These are quality Made in the USA Cometic MLS (multi-layer-steel) head gaskets offered in their entire selection range so you can get exactly the bore size and thickness gasket you need to suit your specific engine build and desired compression ratio. Using alternate thickness head gaskets is a common practice to help target a specific compression ratio or to compensate when heads or the block deck has been shaved to ensure a proper/flat mating surface.
You can run a thinner head gasket to help raise the compression ratio on your engine, or a thicker one to lower it.
You can run a thicker head gasket to compensate for decking/surfacing the heads if you want to maintain the same compression ratio.
You typically MUST run a thicker head gasket if you deck the block causing the pistons to protrude past the top deck of the block as pictured here.
The gasket thickness is measured toward the outer edges of the gasket where the outer layers are flat/flush with the center layer.
Gasket bore sizes range from 91.5mm to 95.0mm with thicknesses from .027" to .140".
