I have done a few head gaskets on 22R/RE engines. I have yet to see a Toyota head gasket fail prematurely.


Hi t...

Thank you.

Your comments are exactly the detail of information I look for.  The factory head gasket gets high, if not the highest marks, from many people, so I know it is safe choice.  And, I agree, I don't recall anyone posting a statement that they had an issue with the "qualilty" a Toyota gasket or part.  As we know, bgen is a very strong advocate for Toyota's "stuff".

I am going to buy a Fel-Pro and a factory Toyota.  I WILL compare them, at least visually.  I have almost $6,000 invested into this rebuild/restore project, so for me the price of a gasket is completely insignificant.

The parts I've ordered from 22REP have been in Toyota packaging, but because I've had bad experiences with aftermarket and "OE" designated parts, I'm probably overly cautious.

Gnarls.
