Are these simular to the felpro 1094 brand?

Answers

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.

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.

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.

(Part #3441003)
                        

These Fel-Pro gaskets work with both cast iron and aluminum heads. Pre-flattened steel wire ring gaskets have the strength of steel wire sealing with minimum brinelling of aluminum heads. Pre-flattened copper wire ring gaskets will not brinell aluminum heads. They offer superior heat dissipation. Multi-layer steel gaskets offer current leading-edge technology and provide a long-term, leakproof seal called Perma Torque MLS.

  • Gaskets are sold each
  • Pre-flattened steel wire
  • Nominal compression thickness: .041"
  • Compressed volume: 9.1 cc
  • 4.166" bore gaskets can be used on 400 race engines with up to 4.155" max bore with minimal chamfer
  • When using aluminum heads, we recommend gaskets with soft copper wire rings (such as 344-1010). This ensures that the aluminum head is not "scarred" by the combustion seal. Shim style 344-1094 will also work well with aluminum heads.
