They make the custom sized Ford intake gaskets for me in a 3/16" thick material.

Pretty sure they can do GM. ;)
We are considering the double gasket idea as well. We'll check them out after we finish installing the suspension from 4Wheelonline onto the Wrangler this week.

Re: Drilled-Slotted Rotors & differential bore calipers

Slots are used on solid rotors to "wipe" them clean of debris and hot gases. Drilled holes are used on vented rotors to improve the air flow through the rotor vents. Very often, holes are drilled randomly (or incorrectly) which does not produce proper heat distribution and then leads to cracking. W...

Re: Daily driving a 496ci 1960 NewYorker. Rain or Shine.

Man, that's totally neat! Great idea for the cluster looks. My uncle got this Dodge Dart as next project. Got to finish first the installation of the suspension from 4Wheelonline onto the truck and clear the garage. The year is not confirmed yet but she needs some TLC.
