Re: manifold gasket
There is a suprising amount of difference from using the tin cover to not I think.
But as said, it is harder to get them to seal, and with ported heads, acl gaskets are very good.
What I have done with the last couple of clevo builds is keep the tin cover, drill a couple of holes in the lowest point, cut off the manifold sealing flanges, and trim it to sit nicely in the valley, without interfering with either end seals, or manfold seals.
Works a treat :)
Hope this helps.
