  1. Hhhmmm, I'd spring for $60 gasket. Thanks for the Heads-Up on the possible valley pan offset because I'll be ordering that from Hughes too.

  2. Thats a rip-off for the valley pans.Do you need a valley pan, why not cut out the 2 manifold side gaskets and run a cork gasket front and back leaving some overhang so it seals up those step up lips.Just a guess what ya wreckon bud 🙂
