Default New Greddy Gaskets

Hi guys,

I'm mailing from Ireland with a question. I got a second hand greddy td05 turbo kit that I am looking to install. My problem is that some of the gaskets are missing. Have you any idea where I could get replacement gaskets for it?

Thanks

Hugh

Many install them without gaskets. Just make sure that the mating surfaces are flat. You can accomplish this with emory cloth (or sandpaper) on a flat surface.

I used gaskets on my turbo but I've never met anyone else who did. FWIW, I work at a chemical plant and we run 3000 PSI through huge lines (20") with no gaskets. Metal on metal will always seal better.
