As title guys , after turboing the car I've gained a few oil leaks , I reused my old rocker gaskets so think I need to treat myself to a new set , just wondering peoples thoughts on the tried and tested ones ? Boost performance sell a flat gasket which sounds better but I'm assuming they don't come with the bolt gaskets / rubbers ?

Cheers

The Boost Performance ones are flat/thicker than the XR4i spares ones.
The only issue I had with them is getting them lined up and stuck to the cam covers themselves before fitting  :-X

What have you got in the way of crankcase ventilation on your turbo setup?

I've got a breather from the sump into a breather pot , along with the rocker cover breather , do you know if the little rubber gaskets for the bolts come in the kit ?

Well, if I wasn't a complete dunce at computers I would link to the webpage  :-X

Just google Boost Performance and then click on the engines section on the website. The cam cover gaskets are listed in the left hand column at £65, and without a picture as well
