Intake gasket setting time

Hey fellas
am wondering what you all think is a good time to wait until i drive/dyno the motor after changing intakes and gasket.
Using felpro gasket.

cheers all

Re: Intake gasket setting time

If I'm using the pure silicon for a valley gaskit I like to leave it 24 hours to set.

But using standard stuff.........as above.

I've run one with an hour to let the silicon kick off, but the engine was still very warm when I changed the gasket.... no end seals, just a tonne of silicon
