Bump To Pass!!
This comment confuses me.....thats all true, BUT.... he uses them in his pulling truck and the block is filled.
He uses them in his drag truck with o-rings heads, and it pushes coolant still.
his shop has done 15+ head gasket jobs over the past few months, w/o o-rings in the heads w/o any comebacks.
that is a start i guess. Im not sold on em yet personally.
You agreed with everything I said and proved my points, but added a "BUT...."
I have done over 50+ HG jobs out of my shop in the last 2 years, ALL not o-ringed, and with the VR gaskets and not one issue or comeback. Most of them are on tuned trucks also. It is good to see that the gaskets have lasted longer then most of the injectors he puts out, and I agree that the Fel-pro will most likely be a GREAT alternative to the VR and OE stuff. I was simply stating that using a race truck as an example to the gaskets strength doesn't prove ANYTHING at all.......NOW if said race truck has 4-5 seasons on it and no rebuilds and no issues maybe we could use it as an example, but hard towing miles speaks volumes more then a couple of passes and rides on a trailer.
