No what i meant was the hot air passage in the intake and heads.I know that we usually get that little metal thing in the gasket kit. What I was wondering was how to block that passage.

We have used a thin piece on sheet metal, cut it the size needed and siliconed it in place.. We were trying to block all the hot water from the carb.

I just run the Felpro gaskets with the metal built in to the holes.

yep use the felpro gasket that doesnt have the hole and also make sure you run the gasket that fits closest to your intake and head port sizes. you can get the gaskets that fit the holes but bigger than ports.. im sure u know this just incase.
