    Question Uprated Head Gasket kit

    Does anyone know where i might be able to get hold of a uprated head gasket kit for Z20LET?

    Or if not uprated would anyone know the part number for standard gasket from Vauxhall or anywhere else I might be able to get one from??

    For Clarky's Sri-Turbo.................. Its a tad dead!! AGAIN!!

    No idea on "uprated" set but for a full head set from Vx its PN 93172424

    Personally speaking its probably cheaper to buy all the individual gaskets/parts seperately....Sounds bizarre I know - but I bought a full head set from a dealer a few months ago albeit not the ZLET and the guy told me to buy seperately to save a few quid.

    Even better if u can get trade - if u dont automatically qualify for trade club - ask! you'll be surprised how many dealers give trade price without proof.

    If its just the head gasket itself then its PN 93180271

    If ur just getting "standard" gaskets - Id strongly advise Genuine GM stuff

    stick with a GM one, all the C20LET boys and girls fit them as an upgrade. You cant get much stonger than a metal gaskit

    What is wrong with the standard one? I've only ever heard of one going. People fit thiese to high powered C20LET as they are regarded as very strong.
