    I still need to finish my exhaust thread and still in the middle of the upper radiator hose deal but my next deal is the foot flange gasket (turbo to manifold) I was talking to someone at the nationals Friday night and I may have a source to have some made. I need to buy one. It can be hard and brittle but it must be complete. It can even have some cracks. I can fill the cracks and have it 3D printed and use that for the mold. I have two that are ripped in half so I would rather not use them for a pattern.

    Eric,
    I have also been working on that project. Been stalled for some time. I think a one piece design might work. I just need to finish the drawing and have one made. Let me know what you think.

    Eric,
    I have a turbo which, I believe, has never been installed on a car. The turbo to manifold gasket looks to be perfect. I was going to put the turbo on a car just so I can move it outside the garage to work on the garage floor. However I have another gasket which will work for what I want to do. If you can use what I believe is the new one, I will remove it and send it to you.

    For what we will be trying i would not need a new one or even a perfect one. Just one in the correct shape that is still in one piece.
