5.0 Valley Gaskets

Is there a common alternative to the FEL1250? Is the FEL1250s3 more appropriate? Or should FELPRO be avoided altogether?

for the valley I've always used a nice thick bead of silicone. Let it set for about 15 minutes and get tacky first then just slap the manifold down and I've never had any problems.

thats the Felpro setup I used no issues at all and actually like the formed rubberish pieces instead of filling rather big gaps with silicone

Paul

That set looks interesting. I haven't seen the rubber versions of those before. Not sure if I can find that locally.

Thanks for the tip with the silicone. What about intake manifold gaskets? Trickflow recommend FEL1250 but the pre tune info says NO. Is the steel core version (FEL1250s3) suitable?
