In the brutally tough environment that typifies a performance engine, Fel-Pro performance head gaskets deliver superior sealing performance. 

Fel-Pro performance exhaust header gaskets, the performance version of an exhaust manifold gasket, resist blowout and burnout and provide good exhaust flow.

Fel-Pro performance exhaust header gaskets consist of a high-density fiber facing material attached to both sides of a perforated steel core. This design provides a durable gasket that will seal slightly warped surfaces.

Also, we use an anti-stick coating that allows the gasket to move without sustaining damage and helps the gasket accommodate the expansion and contraction of the head and headers.

Fel-Pro designs the exhaust header gaskets with “slotted” bolt holes so you can easily slip the gasket in place and then tighten the bolts. The high-density fiber retains the torque to ensure the gaskets seal

Fel-Pro performance intake manifold gaskets must prevent air, oil and dirt from being sucked into the intake ports and prevent coolant from leaking out of the coolant ports. For performance engines, this is complicated by the variety of aftermarket cylinder heads and intake manifolds in use.

Fel-Pro performance intake manifold gaskets have been tested for use with most all aftermarket cylinder head and intake manifold combinations. In addition, most Fel-Pro performance intake manifold gaskets do not have a metal core, which allows engine builders to trim the gasket to ensure an exact fit on modified ports.

Fel-Pro offers a solid-core intake manifold gasket for high-vacuum race engines, as well as performance applications that have a long expected service life — i.e., street machines, marine use or tow vehicles. The solid core provides extra strength and stability, and the gaskets come in proven port shapes used in race intake gaskets.
