About to be putting on the Skunk2 I/M and boring the T/B. What are the chances that I WONT have to scrape the OEM I/M gasket off the head? I've never priced out a gasket, but to be safe should I just grab the Hondata heat shield gasket and replace the gasket nevertheless?

gaskets aren't that much, and anytime you take your engine apart you should replace any gaskets you come across (unless you JUST replaced them). something stupid as a gasket can still fuck your engine up.

YOu should definately get a new one. There is no chance the one thats there is still or will still be in good use. Most likely it
ll tear into several peices and stick to various parts of the IM and head surface.

Get ready for some hard cleaning and make sure you block off the ports to the head so nothing gets in there.
