i got my greddy d16a thicker head gasket in today, tomorrow im going to try to put it on my d16y8 block, will it fit perfectly or will it not work?

its the only thicker head gasket i could find, and the greddy gasket says 92-95 d16a, and when i lined it up with a stock d16y8 head gasket i got from honda, 2 of the bottom bolt holes do not line up exactly, i also got arp head studs so i hope everything goes in good

I doubt it will fit , if not just use a stock gasket and work on your tuning, standard compression is much nicer for a daily driver.

Aftermarket metal headgasket is also alot tougher than stock. Don't forget that.

I have the wine from my timing belt too. Got used to it. At low RPM, my timing belt wines and at hi rpm, the turbo does. Mmmm....sweet.

Oh, btw: R-Ideal also makes a thicker one, you can get it from F-MAX for sure. I don't know who else sells that brand.
