All parts listed are suitable for saloon, sports and 4x4 applications unless otherwise stated.
Composite head gaskets are thicker than standard tin gaskets and will therefore lower the engines compression ratio. Ideal for correcting compression ratio when heads/block faces have been skimmed. (Not applicable 1995 on).
Approximate gasket thicknesses are as follows:
Sandard (tin) gaskets - 0.5mm
Composite gaskets - 1.2mm
Typical effect on compression ratio:
Standard (tin) gaskets - 3cc
Composite gaskets - 10cc
