No need to make a thread AND bring one back from the dead for the same reason.

I have the ebay gaskets installed and they are working great so far. Perfect fit with no leaks.

I think these are it. You might want to double check the bolt holes just to be sure.

On my DSM the factory gasket was a layered composite, I replaced it with a gasket that was a single layer of SS. Worked fine. I'm sure there are places out there that could stamp out a new gasket if you sent them the blowed out stocker as a template.

I popped off the turbo's heatshield yesterday.. so.. what would a blowing gasket look like? The turbo had some white staining along the gasket line.. I was expecting a black sooty look from a blowing gasket tho.. ?
Can post pics if need be.
Also, it seems the ring clamp around both halves of the turbo may be leaking some soot.. is this easy to remove + fix?
Thanks,
Steve

I remember reading somewhere that MLS (multi layer steel) gaskets are less likely to fail than single layer gaskets.

Think the article was talking about head gaskets.

I'm installing a well worn Greddy kit on my 1.6

I don't expect the mating surfaces to be flat but I'll check

What type of gaskets do I need for a TD04H-14g turbo if I decide to use one ??

I see generic gaskets listed as TD04 /TDO5 will these fit ????

Thanks

Copper RTV is all I'll ever use for turbo gaskets. The heat basically eats it alive and it looks like a powdery orange color when you remove the parts but it never leaked on me. Probably better than running without a gasket though.

Thanks. I have also heard that the copper RTV works but I would still like to have the option of a gasket.

Just bring it to a shop and get it sanded down flat on a disc sander, much easier and less to worry about. Or file away at your house, same results.

Yikes ! I just did some Googling on the gaskets - It seems that there is a lot of confusion about what gasket to use.

It's no wonder you guys go without them.
