Are these simular to the felpro 1094 brand?

Are these simular to the felpro 1094 brand?

Answers

July 20, 2013
dirtracer66
they are similar, yet a little different. the fel-pro 1094 is a 4.100" bore with .015" compressed thickness, and is a bare steel shim that needs to have a sealer applied to it. these gaskets are 4.165" bore with .024" thickness, is a steel shim that is already coated and ready to install. so if you are using a 400 block, you will need to use these ones, if you want a shim. there are no steam holes for 400 in either of them.

These gaskets are similar to the Fel-Pro but have a different coating on them than the FePro 1094

Can these gaskets be used by themselves to increase compression or do they have to be used with other gaskets?

Yes they can.Being that thickness is .015 compressed,compression change.No other gasket needed.
July 20, 2013
dirtracer66
it is its own gasket, nothing else is required, it is not a head saver shim, it is an actual gasket.

This set of Super Seal head gaskets are intended to be used with out any other gasket. These gaskets are only applicable to the 1957-76 chevy blocks and heads due to the design of the gasket, they will leak water on later models. Will not work with Vortec heads

No these steel shim gaskets would not be recommended for your aluminum heads. AFR recommends Fel-Pro gasket 1003 for all applications except for 400. If your engine is a 400 then use Fel-Pro 1034. We have both of these gaskets in stock as part numbers 344-1003 and 344-1034 respectively.

sbc 57-76 heads. What is difference between these heads and later heads? Why different head gaskets?

The difference is steam holes in the gaskets or no steam holes and newer heads are shaped different at the bottom of head and these gasket will leak water if used on newer style heads.
