LD28 head gasket thickness


Post by HowlerMonkey »

I understand that there are 3 different thicknesses and was wondering whether it was done for compression or cam timing after a head resurface?

I am building one for turbo and am wondering if using the thickest of the 3 gaskets would be the best choice for a turbo application.
