Its possible but I think its better not to use it for twin cam . Those two rebuilds were 15 years apart , gasket were bought separate . Still it could be same batch considering number of GTi's still in existence and number of rebuilds in the US . I've never had an issue with Felpro gaskets either on...

Thank you for all replays . suzukitom - I've never had an issue with Felpro even with 15 pounds of boost on my T3 . Since Im mostly Mk1 guy I didn't think it was necessary . Interestingly my Mk1 GTi with G13B does not have that issue and Im pretty sure I used Felpro in that rebuild too bostssgt - th...

In both engines I used Fel-Pro gaskets when I rebuilt them , both were decked . Never had and issue with Fel-Pro on mu T3's but I'm starting to suspect it's not the right gasket f...

Keep in mind its only 0.6 liter more displacement then Mk1 T3 and it makes 3.5 times the power . I wouldn't say that's "only" 268 HP , also it's 13 second car, stock. Not exactly a slouch . All cars, by Sprint standard, are pigs now days . "Pony" cars are 4000lbs . Weight moved up the scale along wi...

$36000
Think of it this way - only $5000 more than family sedan for WRC homologation special , what a bargain

1.28 tons (2800 lbs) , still the lightest of the new generation pigs .
Not available here yet , that may change for 2021
….and if it doesn’t it wouldn’t be the first time I had to resort to some creative thinking .
My Mk1 GTi in my backyard is the witness
