Unending oppurtunities for restorers of older motors..

A thicker gasket for engines that have had the head milled or deck milled to thin. In those engines where the head has needed milling several problems may be encountered such as 1) abnormal timing configuration, 2) increased compression ratio and 3) shortened piston/valve clearance. In overhead cam engines the timing configuration would be altered since the distance from the cam and crankshaft has been altered and therefore the timing chain or belt is found to be slack. This problem may be solved with the SHIM GASKET where the thicker head gasket would take this slack up. Also, when the deck is milled and the pistons stand proud above the deck and clearance becomes a problem the SHIM GASKET may correct this.

Similar to above product. A thicker gasket enables the performance enthusiast to decrease the compression ratio and use "off-the-shelf" approved turbochargers with augmented manifold pressures for added horsepower and torque.

Performance modifications include thinner gaskets and improving coolant flow through the head which can translate into additional horsepower. We work with the client to engineer a head gasket architecture that will improve function and performance.
