5.0 VRS kits

G'day..

Once I've finished porting my "mad as" E7s, I'm going to need some head gaskets to install them. I've been quoted around $250 for a VRS kit... but i really only want the head gaskets and manifold gaskets. I can get all the manifold gaskets seperatly for around $50 total. I havnt investigated buying the head gaskets seperatly yet, but ive got a question:

Will old 289/302 carby engine head gaskets fit my late model 5.0?

The reason i ask is that there are mobs on ebay selling gasket kits for these engines for less than $100. presumably the manifold gaskets will be different, but the head gaskets (the bit i really need) would be the same wouldnt they?

cheers fellas.

Re: 5.0 VRS kits

Yes the older windsor head gaskets will fit. The intake gaskets also fit but are fairly small compared with the decent felpro 1250 intake gasket.

Also sent you A PM.

Re: 5.0 VRS kits

pay the extra $$$ and get decent head gaskets, no point doing all this work to have a head gasket fail, due to trying to do it on the cheap.
