head gasket question?

Post  racinghabbit on December 11th 2014, 12:58 pm

Can you use a regular fel-pro gasket kit with the stock head gaskets in a 12:1 compression 460? will the head gaskets hold up ?

No problem!
I've ran 14:7 for two yrs with stock gasket's and head bolts.
But the head and block was flat, Chase your threads so they are clean and you get a good TQ.

I ran them in my engine (14.5:1) for several years and never had a head gasket issue.
