Chris is using better quality gaskets, why make a project more difficult and time consuming than necessary? Why pay for a couple hours of needless labor when it can be done quickly and easily for less time and labor costs. Gaskets that are removed and reused can be stretched, torn or misshaped. May as well do it right and not have to worry about it again. TCA members at the meet were thrilled proper new valve cover gaskets, spark plug wires, clutches and pretty much everything else can be purchased for 16v engines now from the guys who race these cars and know how to work on the engines.
