I built race cars for about 5 years and we used a lot of Felpro gaskets. Never had an issue with them despite some pretty bad abuse.

I agree, FelPro, i dont understand why Victor Reinz engineers continually put out a inferior product. Years ago did a 6.5 gm with all the good stuff, splayed mains, gear drive, lowered compression, balanced, ect....
Gave the latest victor reinz gaskets a try and in less than 10k i was pulling the heads back off, i was pissed .
So i diasected the victor gasket and measured the material thickness of the fire ring and compared it to a old felpro i had in the shop .007 was how much thicker the felpro was.
With the felpros installed and 180k later, still no problems, all trailer miles and 25lb boost. I have never had a engine fail with head gasket problems using felpro.
Anybody care to tell me what i am in for with my van ? E350 2006 6.0. Heads need to come off, i havent found anybody that has done one
