Default Gasket sets.

FCP Groton used to sell Elring head and block gasket/seal kits.

Anyone know where they're available? B230FT kit.

Looks like they only have the HG. I'm looking for the whole head and block "kit" These usually include everything (hg, intake, exhaust, hushers, valve seals, cam cover gasket, etc etc)

I was wondering about this. I also was unable to get the "usual" Elring kit for my latest B230FT build. I recieved the Victor-Reinz kit from FCP. The kit looks just fine. I still have not used it though, 'cause I'm waiting for money for better rods. But, Is there a substantial difference in either kit? I have used Elring in the past with no issues at all.

Any preferences?

This number is good for either the VR or Elring gasket set.

I can't speak for the Elring set, but I've never had any problems with any of the VR stuff i've used and I've done two B230s so far with this kit. They also sell a crankcase gasket set that comes with oil pan, front/rear main seals, etc.

I have used both and have not had issues with either manufacturer. I prefer the Elring sets. The fit on the seals is better, IMO. Opinion only, no real world results to mke me choose one over the other.

Umm, I've not heard good things about their head gaskets. I want to stick with Elring.

I may wind up getting the Reinz kits and the Elring HG and exhaust gaskets separate.
