Default Best manifold gasket for turbo EFI bug

I think I'm having heat sink issues with my SP1 injection manifolds as I'm just running copper RTV instant gasket, rather than proper gaskets

What's the best kind of manifold gasket to use on a road driven EFI turbo, that'll seal well and not get blown to bits. Something partially metal maybe, dunno, I'm not up on gakets.

Cut my own? what out of and where from.



ta peeps

I use the fibre gaskets (kind of a dark grey colour).
As long as you tighten down the manifolds well they shouldn't blow out.
For belt and braces you could try using a bit of silicone rtv with them too.

Think I've got some in the shed Dan, I'll have a good look tomorrow - ta.

Im starting to notice a few issues after 15 minutes of being stood, probably a few other related issues too. Nice to be looking at the smaller issues for a change.

Found these this morning. I think I'd assumed that they'd fall to bits, but if they work for you, they'll be more than fine for my 10psi.



The originals have a metal layer. I think they lasted for some time but one broke, probably due to reusing it a few times.

They're what I use. A lot easier to match the port sizes than the metal ones.
