Hi all,

I must change the intake manifold gasket on my L67 engine 3.8 supercharged, because oil leak on the valley.

My question is, which gasket: Fel-Pro or Victor Reinz, in the past, i have always used a Fel-Pro gasket on a other engine and no problem, i know that the temperature is high with the supercharged, but...

In the same time, i will change the gasket between the supercharged and the intake manifold.

If you have a suggestion, you welcome...

Thank-you !

^^^ he is correct. dont bother with the standard set, because they are almost guaranteed to fail again. as long as they are metal where the pushrods go through, you will be good

I generally prefer Victor Reinz gaskets for the most part.

I've used Fel-Pro on my GTO and 74 C10 with no problems. I strongly recommend them.
