Good to know; another question: the turbo manifold I'm using is a cast iron unit for a Mazda 3. The two leaks I have are right at the rectangular cut outs on the back of the cylinder head. I was looking at the Mazda 3 gaskets and they seem to cover up the rectangular cutouts with more material. What do you think? I might just buy both and seeFrom what I see, it appears to be the same part number for the 2.3 no matter what the engine. Fel-Pro gasket #MS96663 is what it calls for. It's less than $14 too.
Yeah, I just noticed that as I was shopping around. I ordered a non-PZEV gasket because I deleted and removed every PZEV component on my car haha The flange on the turbo manifold I'm using exposes some of the gasket.The gasket for a PZEV is a special one, though I doubt you're running the air injection that NEEDS the right one to work.
Special one actually includes the air channel to the exh. pipes between it's outer portions - joins each pair of pipes.
