Aftermarket headgaskets?

I'm using the hypermax headgaskets on a 6.0 that i'm building for a guy I know.I've had heads o-ringed before but this is the first time trying these gaskets.Just wondering if anybody else has used them before?

Re: Aftermarket headgaskets?

From what Hypermax has written on them on their site they sound like they would be good to use. BUT with that said how do you calculate RWHP from BHP?

Re: Aftermarket headgaskets?

I see what you mean.I'm guessing all of their testing was done out of the truck.But we got the gaskets in last week and i got to say they look like a real improvement from the junk factory design.We'll just have to see,this is the first 6.0 i've done with injectors bigger than 200cc's to.I gona be ticked if i have to tear it back down.

Re: Aftermarket headgaskets?

you should be good to go. EGR system being gone is a BIG PLUS! But only if you are deleteing it entirely not just at the up pipe.

Re: Aftermarket headgaskets?

I used the gaskets that came with my O-RING kit from ATS..almost identical to the factory HG's but made for the rings of course.. I don't think there is any problem with the factory gaskets(for the record)

Re: Aftermarket headgaskets?

we have used a few sets of the hypermax head gaskets (the non grooveable style) Hypermax says not to use studs with em. They have held up pretty good so far with a set of stage 2 injectors and turbo
