Just a little deal about the MLS gaskets.
I know it was asked months and months ago. But with the success of MLS gaskets, there is no reason to O-ring a block. They hold so much cylinder pressure that there is no need for more. Look to the big boys of NHRA pro stock, NASCAR and the like. They are holding naturally aspirated engines in the 1450 horsepower ranges with zero failures. Also supercharged engines in the 1600-1700 range. They also seal water and oil passages better than copper gaskets.
Everyone is starting to make their own version of the MLS gaskets. So Cometic is not the only game in town. With the manufacturing of these types of gaskets, custom stuff is failry easy to accomplish in comparison to what was available even five years ago.
In about two months I will be searcing around for someone to make me a half a dozen of these gaskets as I will be doing a few rebuilds. I may come on and post who can make them and prices to do so.
As for finding them, just google MLS gaskets. or check out here:
cometic.com
DuPont is making them, as is FelPro, and others adding the technology every day.
