Re: turbo gaskget

Get the surfaces ground flat (or DIY rubbed finish -- surface plate and valve cutting paste). Do it right and you'll not have to use any firegum, although a tiny smear is OK. Now would be a good time to address the issue of the bolts bending if you don't flat off the relevant parts of the turbo housing........
