VX Xe inlet gasket


Recommended Posts

I have QED jenvey dth throttle bodies on my HPC and the gasket has started to leak coolant at the front where the water inlet is, can i put something on the gasket, instant silicone gasket for example, or do you think a new gasket is needed. i have not got the bodies of yet to look at condition of gasket but they have been on for around four years.

Depending on how long the gasket has been on, it is my experience that these nearly always 'stick' to either the TBs or the head or both and are almost impossible to remove intact. I would replace it *thumbup*. Once removed, clean both faces thoroughly (I use a razor blade to carefully remove residual gasket) before fitting the new one. I never use sealant.
