Have been reading that the FPP B460 are repackaged Felpro 1028????
FPP site list B460 comp thickness .038
Felpro list 1028 comp thickness as .041
Can anyone confirm this info?

Ford performance p/n M-6051-B460. Big bore, 10 bolt, .038 compressed

Its a Fel-Pro 1028 but when you buy the ford ones you get the pair for the price of one Fel Pro..

Why are they listed as different Comp Thickness?

They aren't .038". More like .042"

B460 are a bargain for sure.
