Intake Manifold Gasket - which type?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I have the intake off my '88 Reatta and received the replacement gaskets yesterday.  I noticed that the ones I removed had the rubber seals around the ports, but the replacement doesn't.  

 

Has anyone had any experience with the gaskets without the rubber seal?  Am I better off ordering a set with the rubber seals, or are the ones without them sufficient?  Side-by-side comparison below.

Thanks,

Nick

I believe the FelPro brand will have the silicone beads and the Victor Reinz does not, the whole thing can compress and if memory serves they have metal insert rings in the bolt holes to limit compression. I have used both types with success.

Forgot to say thanks - I found the insert rings and installed the gaskets, and today fired her up.  No leaks!
