Head Gasket recommendations

Post  Sheermadness77 on April 21st 2016, 10:37 am

Hello, rebuilding my 460 cast stock block with cast stock heads with .030 over forged pistons and wondering what head gaskets I should be using. I am running 150 shot of NOS. In the past I have always used Fel-pro gaskets with great luck. After 8 years of running the head gasket's were leaking coolant into the crankcase (very slowly). I am wondering if there is a better choice of head gasket for my application. Any and all replies will be greatly appreciated. Thanks, -Ed

+1 Fel Pro 1018 works. Cometic for more extreme situations.

I have used the standard Blue Felpro PTP's in my deal with the same amount of nitrous at 8.5/1 compression with no problems. Going back with them again and could have done 1018's for not much more but, did not see a reason to change. When I do my 10/1 big nitrous engine I am going with 1018's though.
