Intake gasket coolant leak
Looking for intake gasket recommendations because of a coolant leak at front of intake on passenger side of engine. It only leaks during the winter months when garage is about 45 degrees. The rest of the year, no leaks. The intake was installed in 2009 when TMS installed the long block engine. Iíve had this problem for the last 5 years. I have a SBF (331) with Trick Flow twisted wedge aluminum heads and aluminum Edelbrock Performer RPM intake. Looking at Fel-Pro 1250 printoseal gaskets. Iíve read when using these gaskets itís best to remove the L shaped gasket material at the water ports. Iím also wondering when the intake was installed, if installer didnít enlarge water port on gasket by removing gasket material to make opening square instead of L shaped. This might be the cause on my coolant leakage because of a wicking effect. The gasket that sticks out past intake is enlarged, sticky and shows signs of coolant. All intake recommendations/installation comments welcome.
