Default engine/manifold gasket

do you have to have 2?? one on the engine and one in the manifold??? since they both but up in the same direction, why would you need 2 when you could just make the one bigger?

LMAO. I don't know if your serious but you just need one on the engine. If you have a 1 piece pipe you also need one where the header connects to the pipe.

Why would you need 2 shocks on the front or back of the car when they arms are connected together by the roll bars?

You kind of ummmmmmm.........HAVE to seal both of them.
And it's cheaper to make 2 instead of one big one. Plus if one tears, you just replace that one, instead of 1 in some bizarre set-up.

If you haven't been using one between the header and the pipe that would explain your tune going all over the place and the high rate of gasket failure.

I get what you mean now, just get rid of one of them, and use it as a spare.

don't laugh but i have been using 2. That explains the gas leeking out the back all over the place. And my shot glow plug. I am getting close!!!


this probably has something to do with it backfiring too.
