Hi Guys,

I Just ordered 4 Of the GSAP210E Big Bore Aussie Head Gaskets
From Precision International
I expected them to take 3 or 4 weeeks to arrive.. as they were coming from the Big Island...

I Ordered Saturday 3/21/15 11:30 EST.

They were on my doorstep Wed Afternoon! 3/25/15 Before 3:00PM EST
That was quicker then My domestic orders from Rockauto, Summit racing Etc.!

Also With The Exchange rate USD to AUD right Now, its not a bad deal!
$150.08 AUD with Shipping.

That is $118.63 USD and $3.56 For international Card Fee.

So for a total of $122.19 USD I had my 4 Aussie Big Bore / Endurotec/Permaseal Gaskets.


So I am all in for $30.54 USD per gasket.

That is a good price. I wouldn't have minded getting a couple too. Although I probably should check and see how many I already have!

I've ordered a couple clutch sets from an OZ company (Hemi Performance) in the last couple years as well, and both times the shipping speed was impressive. In addition, the parts quality's been excellent.

Precision Int'l is where I got my last Endurotec gaskets. I bought the "head set" with int/exh, VC, and other gaskets included. It was only about AU$10 more than the head gasket by itself.

Thanks for the info, Greg.

Cool.

I have so many v/c and Valve stem gaskets I was think of using them as Christmas tree ornaments next year... So I just bought the Head only. :D

I wonder if a group buy could be put together, and what kind of discount might be offered for multiple quantities?

Big bore is 3.65 or 3.66 if I remember correctly. It is not MLS.

Thnaks for your answers! 3,65in bore is big enogh for me!!! Too bad it's not a MLS ... and about compressed tickness there is a big difference between 0,046 to 0,035 ... I'll have to ask

Is there a MLS big bore gasket available somewhere of the shelf?? How about Cometic ... I need a MLS gasket for bore bigger than 90mm (3,55) ...

Thanks!

Cometics is a no go. I just checked a few months ago and they would run about $330-$350 each and I can't remember off hand if there was a minimum order of 20.

My son is working with another manufacture to see if he can get a MLS head gasket done that would be considerably less $$ than the Cometics. He needs one for his race car also. Stand by .
