    Default headgasket recomendation

    Well looks like my headgasket has seen betters days. With 95% leakdown on 3 cylinders and air coming up the opposing plug holes i think this has been my issue.

    So basically looking for recommendation on what headgasket to replace with, also should i replace the head bolts? Sr20det (bb)
    I thought about doing a full oem rebuild but i just got accepted to school and funds are going to be tight for the next while so thinking of just slapping a new gasket on and running here. Thanks Dave

    I recommend the OEM MLS head gasket...like @Kyle is selling now. I would also replace the head bolts as they are torque-to-yield and designed to stretch.

    If you use the mls gasket be sure to get everything super clean.. the ve/vet gaskets work fine as the only difference is 1 additional hole that neither your head or block have so it don't matter

    ALWAYS replace every head bolt when doing a new head gasket on these motors. Can order OEM ones thru Nissan parts dept.
