The "blue" 8993 Fel Pro head gasket for our 2.3 "Lima" engine is available individually OR in Sets  (usually preceded by an "HS" [head set] in the part number), Tom. The individual gasket you want is an 8993PT1 (LINK). The others you see that are followed with P2, P3, P4......etc. are head sets that include numerous other gaskets and seals, but the head gasket itself is the same in all those various sets. [Image: anim_32.gif]

Not to hijack, but how much boost can the old PT8993 with ARP studs take, if detonation is not a factor.
Wanting to build cheap turbo Lima power!

I've seen guys run up to 25psi on a 8993 with a spot on tune. I'm guessing you could go more as long as the tune is right.

i run up to 40 with rings in the block and my modified ARP studs on a 899s
Function before form. Going fast is looking good!

It's not really a boost thing. The gasket won't automatically blow at "x" boost. Cylinder pressure is more what you're looking at and that can vary from a zillion different factors. Either way, I believe Beanman made over 500hp with one on e85 years ago. Don't think it was o-ringed or anything.
