Victor Solicor gasket, no sealer either. Have run these up to 14:1 with zero problems!
Also like Victor's mls gaskets...use sealer on those.

OU812, Why do you use sealer with the MLS?
Thanks

Unless the finish on the heads and block is around 20 RA, normal cutter lines left from milling will let water leak past the gasket.

OU812,
This is what looks like happened to mine. The finish was too rough?
Why don't you use sealer on the Victor gaskets?
What type of sealer do you use?
Thanks

Cometics don't like alot of nitrous either, at least they didn't on my motor.....had consistent seapage problems when using them also......i'll probably never run them again unless a customer specifies them.

felpro for me. If the tune isn't spot on, I'd rather the gasket fail than burn the head, block or piston.

I used.....
FelPro 1011-1, no sealer, on new 333 stroker w/windsor JR iron lungs. Thus far, no signs of leakage issues.

McCord Graphpac or Cometic. The graphpac is one ritious holder I usually have to pry the heads off to get them to release
