I'm not sure if posting this here is ok, but does Ptuning think bigger head gaskets will be reasonable when going the forced induction route?

I was wondering that too because I've heard of some civic si guys using thicker head gaskets to lower their compression when they go the turbo route.

The answer is no. We believe that the factory head gasket is the best sealing gasket you can use. Our Time Attack tc is running and has been running a OEM stock gasket since 2007.

Even on our S2k turbo kit we utilize the OEM headgasket while running 14psi and making over 450whp.

We are going to take the same steps with the FR-S

Yes on the S2000 too and I hear the best material is copper (maybe bc of its ductile properties)

Ok thanks Mr. Drew. I guess I'll be watching and waiting for the goodness to come from you guys at PTuning.

New Picture updates.

We mocked up a GT-3076 with a tial .82A/R turbo on the FR-S today to start tackling any type of fitment issues. As of now we have a couple ideas for sizing and piping layouts. I will update this thread with more pictures soon.

Pics....

I love safe for work ****!

I can't wait to see where this car goes!

In a car this light and balanced, I'd really want probably another 100 whp, maybe 140 whp just because I like to have a tidy amount over 300 whp.

Ptuning - You stated that the car is runing rich - Did you do a pull after swapping the intake/exhaust/header?
