Is there different size intake gaskets?

My mechanic said to me get the long intake gaskets, what the hell is that? Is there a short gasket?

UMM... The intake gaskets are long and skinny. I'm not 100% sure what he's talking about. Here's a pic of the gaskets.

If you're in there and have more than 60,000 on your truck you might as well replace them.

Ford has quite including them with the gasket kits (even the kit that originally was labelled "intake gasket" kit was relabelled to "gasket kit" without the intake gaskets). Ford sure do appear to be "encouraging" inspection and re-use. I know many techs that re-use them.

As for me, I think like you do and I replaced them when I did the headstids. I agee - they are cheap, but many people are into saving $30 or $40. Most likely the risk is low, the pressure certainly is!

But every little pre-turbo exhaust leak and boost leak can add up. If you explain it to the customer like that they will most times agree with you.
