Hey Guys i just got my car Turbo 3 months ago and still had the factory head gasket and have already blew it.I am having the hardest time finding a good quality head gasket that will hold 10PSI or more if i decide to go higher on a built motor later.I have tried Cometics,i have tryed golden eagle.I do not want to put OEM on there casue i know it will blow agian.A friend of mine mention that i could go with two factory head gaskets and through the together and put it on and i do not want to do that.I would like to know if anyone is runnign a good quality head gasket on an F22B1 vtec motor that is boosted and not leaked or blown yet.The speed shop im going through has taken them 4 weeks to get me an answer if they can get one for my car or not.Please if someone can help it is much appriciated.Thanks alot.
I ♥ my Honda

Default Re: F22B1 HEAD GASKET QUESTION :) (Brycen)

1st thing, if your hg blew you probably have knock...
Use an OEM honda headgasket. They are Multi layer steel and very nice.
And get some headstuds instead of bolts. I had some issues on my engine and currently use an F23 gasket and ARP H23 headstuds and no problems...
12.5 at 116mph on 15psi, 2.060ft with the motor breaking up in the topend of 3rd and 4th due to sparkplug gaps...

F22a, H23 5spd, Darton Mid-sleeved block, 85.5mm bore. Crower billet rods, Wiseco Extreme Duty 8.8:1 Pistons, SBR-M60 turbocharger (60-1 compressor wheel, with a TDO6H turbine wheel), walbro 255, FIC 850cc, AEM EMS w/wideband, delta 272 cam, GM 3 bar map sensor, GM boost solenoid, A full Nitrous Express wet system M/T 24.5" slicks...and hopefully some 10 second passes in the future.
