tfs intake and cometic gasket questions

Post  bbfstanger on May 7th 2017, 11:25 pm

ok I have a unmilled new style tfs A460 intake and it lines up great with no gaskets.   I'm going to get a pr of the cometics intake gaskets this week and was wondering what the compressed thickness is .040 ?  I figured id need to mill the intake a little. Would I need to mill it .040 or the same as the compressed gasket thickness to keep the port alignment? I'm trying to avoid having to mill it more than once . Any rule of thumb?
thanks john

If the intake lines up correctly without a gasket, you'll have to remove whatever thickness you add with a gasket. Most intake gaskets are .060" thick and I've never worried about compressed thickness. I doubt they compress .020". I doubt your ports line up close enough to worry about .020", either. Just remember, it's better to not take enough off than take too much.

Cometic will not compress much. Smile
