NITTO’s metal gasket set has been developed as a high performance alternative to the OEM paper style gaskets normally found on standard engines and as part of the Nissan range of gaskets.
NITTO now offers a practical solution to a long term problem of the OEM type intake gaskets fatiguing and eventually failing when the engine has been run at high boost levels .This is becoming an increasingly common problem even with engines running mild boost levels as the gaskets age, becoming harder and thinner. This causes the gasket to eventually blowout with subsequent power robbing loss in boost and erratic running of the engine under normal driving conditions.
The gaskets have been manufactured using high grade stainless to be resistant to the most extreme conditions with the exhaust gaskets being multilayered offering superior sealing between the head and exhaust manifold/s. The gaskets have been designed to be used with both ported and non heads and therefore require no trimming or modifying when used in most applications.
