    Re: copper intake manifold gasket

    Why do you want to use copper gaskets? Are they suppose to be better. Mr. Gasket would probably be a good brand to check in. Either that or possibly FEL-PRO. As for torque wrenches, all of the intake gaskets I have done, the torque specs. are given in inches instead of ft. lbs.

    I just did some checking around on the net. with mr. gasket and fel-pro and I couldnt find anything for that vehicle but maybe if you go with one of those brands you will have better luck. Good luck. Those cars are known for their intake leaks. Maybe if you call a performance place they might be able to help you out or direct you to somebody that can.

    Why copper? Any particular reason? Just get the fel-pro replacement.
