Thanks for the tip on the "T". The more expensive Fel Pro has a T. The slightly more expensive Victor set claims: No joints means increased durability
• No sealants required
• Compression limiters prevent over tightening
• No torque loss and no shrinkage... ever
But not sure what they are implying. I have searched their web-site trying to decipher but no magic bullet found. I am planning on replacing intake manifold gasket on a 4.3L and have never done it before nor have any help so I am doing all the homework I can in hopes of getting it right the first time.
2001 Bonneville SSEi, 219,000 miles.
Whats in my driveway:
1998 Chevy S10 4x4 ZR2, 1999 Olds Bravada, 2001 Pontiac Bonneville SSEi, 2007 Ford F-350 regular cab 2WD, 2008 BMW 335i coupe (Wife'* replacement for her Bonneville). The Bonneville is my favorite of all the cars in the driveway.
