Cometic MLS head gasket for 406 street engine?
Had planned on FelPro 1014 head gasket with .039 compressed thickness and 4.2 bore for my 4.155 bore 406. I know the FelPro seals good, and I don't want any issues.
Now looking at using the Cometic C5248-030 head gasket, diameter is 4.165.
Compressed thickness is .030 which would make my quench about where I want it.
Will be using AFR 195 Aluminum heads.
Does anyone have experience with this or similar Cometic MLS gaskets with aluminum heads for normal 406 street driven applications?
