Did it stick to the center layer or the outer? I believe only the center is SS...?

All of the layers are stainless, the outer layers are coated with a high temp polymer. They do not have a flattened stainless wire ring. They have embossed beads at all of the critical sealing areas (combustion chamber and water passages) to concentrate the clamping load.

Not trying to start a big debate here... Just stating the facts. I'm a Fel Pro dealer, I've got no less than two dozen Fel Pro MLS gaskets on the shelf, and I use them on 90% of the big block Chevy engines I build... I'm not just guessing at how they're constructed.

Cubic, thank you for more info and tech info on the 1075. More is always better.

Good to hear some one is activally using them. It should work perfect for my 502 application then.

Now one of these days I wont be so f###ing busy at work or home and will get the heads to the machine shop. But i guess in all reality I have all winter to get the heads done, .

Absolutely. They're definitely the best choice if you're considering adding a Procharger at some point.
