Are Victor Reinz gaskets and bolts any good?
Or should I go with the Fel-Pro set for my truck? Going to do a head gasket and such and I'm not sure which set of gaskets I should get. The Victor Reinz set has all of the gaskets the Fel-Pro set has plus several more and it's only a few dollars more. Cost isn't the issue. I'm far more concerned with quality.
Thanks in advance.
proper gasket installation has more to do with the life of your gaskets than what they are made of..of course the correct torque and after a couple of hours use...retorque. Either is a reputable brand and guaranteed, I'm sure but as click and clack always say "It's the stingy man who pays the most!"~
I have heard of Fel-Pro and others have recommended them. I haven't heard of Victor Reinz gaskets. It doesn't mean they are inferior, maybe they're not made for the applications I'm familiar with.
Putting in your own head gasket is cool but why did it fail? Maybe your fixing only the result of the problem. Or maybe your on top of things. Felpro could be a thicker gasket than some, I try to avoid them because less cylinder compression.
I checked out this video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qLHbKzLlXJo) and Victor Reinz sounds like it makes very good gasket sets.
Victor Reinz it is. The head gaskets haven't gone yet. Just shsy of 15k and I have all the leaks gaskets the 4.2 engines are known for. Consider this preventative maintenance. Thanks guys.
