Default DCI Gasket Set

Real good news, I used his Graphtite rear main seal...No leaks.
This gasket set sounds like a well thought out package, as quoted

Thanks for the positive feed back guy's. Some of you already know but for those who don't, Best Gasket Co. has made a complete gasket set to my spec's for the 1967 thru 1972 Pontiac V-8. These sets have allot of upgrades and improvements over Felpro and Victor sets. These sets are available for round port and d-port engines.

Graphtite Rope rear seal
RA IV header gaskets with 2" openings (not 1 7/8")
Actual header gaskets (not steel shims)
RA IV intake gaskets with a steel heat crossover block off plate
The intake gaskets can be used with early and late heads with the small crossover passage
Fiber not cork valley cover and oil pan gaskets
Viton positive valve seals (not rubber or teflon)
New and improved head gaskets that seal against aluminum
Also has oil pump gasket (Felpro does not put it in there kit any longer)

As many of you have found out when building an engine, you have to purchase the header gaskets, Intake manifold gaskets, Graphtite Rope seal, and better head gaskets seperately from the complete set. This ads up and some times we even forget something, like header gaskets at 10pm when we really want to hear this thing run before quiting for the night!!!! Well no longer If you purchase our complete set you will have everything you need. I am currently working on even putting header collector gaskets in the set.

These gasket sets are designed by an engine builder (ME) with the engine builder in mind.With the quality of BEST GASKET CO. and the experience of DCI MOTORSPORTS INC. you can't go wrong.
Complete sets are $119.99. We also carry every gasket in the set separately if you need something in a pinch.

Ken they have stoped putting them in a while back,its not worth buying the Fel Pro set and the only Hi Po set they do is with D port header gaskets at $135 and you still have to go buy the round port header gaskets at $24,i think the new set is a good ideal!!!

Im using the SCE gaskets which also have the good fiber oil pan gaskets ,Viton rear main seal and round port header gaskets,we buy them in Dyno sets (10 packs).

Ive been using some of the new Best Gaskets rear main seals Ken Crocie (HO Enterprises) brought me a set to try,i have to give it the thumbs up!

Talking

I just keep and use the Felpro Perf for my D-port deals. If I need the round port I just use them and sell the d-ports in my retail business. No big deal. We stock a lot of stuff.

I keep in stock all the SCE gaskets for my round port & IA stuff. Seems the thicker V.C. gaskets are back ordered. LOL.
I even keep timing cover seals in stock seperately.

I have soon many of those oil pump gaskets on the wall, I guess I need to check on the next box i open.
