coming along now
so your not opting for dry decked then if you already had the head skimmed
Nope not going for the dry deck option, dont really see the point as i dont do that many races as its my weekend car. At the end of the day if your head gasket goes in a race or the road you still have to replace it & at 150 quid a pop, i dont intend to go through any. I guess there is cooling advantages with the ability to get more water and oil in and out again but still dont see the point, in unnecessary cost for dry decking it. Unless there is something im missing out on???
I am sure its the other way round, if you dry deck it you can use a standard gasket like the bk450, if you dont you have to use the expensive gasket, put a post up on EFI as i may be wrong.
mmm... I dont know how you could use a standard gasket as all but 3 studs are in the wrong location. I dont fancy drilling new holes into a gasket, plus most of the new stud holes will collide with old stud holes which could enable the gasket to move about which in turn could cause all sorts of havoc.
