Intake gaskets for DOVE-C heads

Post  Vermaverick on August 23rd 2016, 4:57 pm

Does anyone know what felpro gasket number I should use on a set of DOVE-C heads with a 4150 flange Edelbrock Victor manifold?

I got P.N. 1420, and the port openings are huge! Way too big to even try and port match to gaskets on either the manifold or the heads.

Thanks in advance

There is none. What you need is usually called a "Victor port match".
The HEADS will need to be port matched to the intake and it will not match exactly when finished. Those giant CJ intake port gaskets must be used to have a good seal all the way around. Under any circumstances, do not match either ports to the gasket.

Thanks rmcomprandy,

I was shocked when I laid the gaskets up to the heads.

So I do actually have the right gaskets, just don't try to open the ports on the heads or on the intake to try and match the gaskets right?

What ford heads actually have the ports that do fit those giant holes?

Correct.
Cobra Jet heads -- D0OE-R

Make a thick paper template from the manifold and use it as a guide for port matching the cylinder heads.
