R171 SLK55 exhaust manifold gaskets (in series of 4)
I was wondering if any members know where I might be able to find replacement R171 SLK55 exhaust manifold gaskets in series of 4 (as opposed to the single gaskets that Mercedes offer)?
We're about to install Kleemann headers on my SLK55 AMG and we plan to change over the manifold gaskets at the same time.
My mechanic advised me that 2 sets of 4 connected gaskets (or even 4 sets of 2 connected gaskets) would be easier to work with than 8 singles gaskets.
Any comments/advice greatly appreciated
(If I discover that it's more advantageous to stick with genuine Mercedes single gaskets, then we will scrap the series idea and use singles).
I've attached 2 pictures as a reference of the kind of aftermarket gaskets that we seek.
