What do you guys thinks of metal head gaskets? I know Vince just installed a multi-layered metal head gasket on his S52. Since I need to replace my head gasket, I was considering going with a metal one, so I hopefully won't have another gasket failure any time soon.
This company offers a couple of options:http://www.maximumpsi.com/products/
The have a single layer gasket and various multi-layered ones. The single layer gasket looks like a nice option. What about getting a slightly thinner gasket, though? It would raise the compression, with a trade off of less clearance. I know from experience that there isn't a lot of clearance to begin with. If you over-rev, you are loosing valves not matter what. What do you guys think?
Oh, and as for price--they run about $100 more than the standard gasket.
