HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.
The purpose of this sticky is to explain the "Advanced Search" function because it is much more powerful and is the best choice when researching information.

When you log on to the site a list of options is shown in a line at the top of the page. One option is labelled "Search", use this option (NOT the search box lower down on the right).

Yes, totally reusable. They are all metal so don't fall apart like conventional gaskets. Don't clean them with harsh chemicals (soapy water is fine) due to the "proprietary coating" and use some copper coating after they're clean.

Make sure those head bolts aren't stretched though.

Hi, thanks for the input...copper coating? How do I tell if the head bolts are stretched? The head bolts are new and have only been torqued once. Thank you.

Copper gasket sealer is an aerosol spray sealant sold at your local auto parts house. Highly recommended for high HP applications and for MLS gaskets.

I don't think you have an LS series engine so never mind the bolt thing. Have fun! Very Happy
