    LEH / LET Head gasket?

    I know the heads and head bolts are the same for LET and the VXR, but looking at the parts system it would seem the head gaskets differ, and certainly have different part numbers.

    Anyone know the difference and if the VXR one is any stronger?

    I always thought the VXR head was slightly different, might be wrong though

    They are identical,Heads

    I have owned both let and leh,

    Although the cams might well differ, but i'm not sure,

    Vx always change part nos,

    But obviously the leh has more HP so they could have changed the gasket

    I already know the heads are the same guys.

    Does anyone know the difference in the gaskets and the benefits of fitting the LEH one on my LET rebuild?

    Thought the LET one was 3 layer to be honest.

    Are we positive the LEH one hasn't been updated at all during it's life? as it appears different on parts system?
