You get two. One installed (in about 5 minutes) and the other shipped along for company (in case you get kwazy with another manifold and heads to go with those yella terra rockers).

If you don't mind, I'd like to hang onto yours through the weekend for the meet. It looks good in the middle of my floor where the air mattress should be.

Matt will probably sleep with it. He misses his Series 1'*.
(It'* one of his old manifolds you see milled for my intercooler)


And if he doesn't, he and John will fight over it. Or it'll end up going HOME with John to go with the p/p M62 I gave him.


Photo opportunity!

Am I the first to offer to buy ZM engraved gaskets en masse? They're the coolest things since sliced bread. Now, if sliced bread were ZM-engraved...

Do these gaskets protrude into passages when they're squished by the various things they're gasketing? I want so badly to believe outright how these are better, but that question comes up because I haven't seen such gasket material before, and I just recently had a chat with someone about Dexcool and gasket materials. Also, now considering Dexcool, even though no one likes it, how would that material fare with that coolant?

That'* is really cool. I've got an NA and the gasket on my LIM for that bypass is smaller and rectangular and the dealership wants 6.60 plus tax for the dang thing!

CoCreate. HP wrote the software originally for UNIX, then sold it to them, and we buy back a license at a discount. I have modules for 3d, 2d, FEA analysis, Thermal analysis, mold flow analysis, etc. Everything possible, really.

http://www.cocreate.com/products/Modeling-Overview.aspx

I've done alot of thermal analysis on the L67'* with this.

I'm not really into going into business here. I made them simply because I needed them. (every time I do a LIM). No, they don't 'squish like you asked. They're basically the same material as a SC gasket or thermostat housing gasket (94/95 and newer L67 gaskets also) only slightly thicker. Maybe SLIGHTLY more pliable, which will allow them to conform to pitting on older aluminum parts a little better. Besides, on the end cap, the cap is larger than the passages to allow for deformity of the gasket.
