Question Who manufactures widefire Head gaskets?

I have read that it is recommeded that if you are going to run higher boost use a wide fire HG. I have one, but I also have head gasket problems. Are these gaskets really any better?

They are considered required if you plan of running more than 1bar of boost. I have the packaging from one that might have the manuf. name on it. I'll reply later tonight.

If yours busted, you might be detonating, have uneven head or block surfaces, wrong torquing, etc.

Yeah, you want to look at the CAUSE of your problem, rather than just fixing the RESULT. I've known people who have blown several wide-firering headgaskets just months apart. They are not an end-all cure-all solution.
