GM Vortec 5.7-Liter Head Gasket Sets MAHLE, Farmington Hills, Michigan, offers MAHLE Original head gasket sets for 1996-2002 General Motors 5.7-liter, 8-cylinder Vin R Vortec engines. The exhaust manifold gaskets are made from multi-layer steel (MLS) and the intake manifold gaskets have new-technology polymer construction for superior sealing. On the intake manifold, the coolant ports are fully encapsulated with HNB to protect against organic acid technology (OAT) coolant, and metal load limiters prevent over-torqueing. The complete set includes 35 pieces. Aluminum Valve Covers Holley Performance Products, Bowling Green, Kentucky, presents its Mr. Gasket brand Finned Fabricated Aluminum Valve Covers that put a modern twist on a classic, old-school design. Constructed of 6061 T5 sheet aluminum and available for small-block Chevys and Fords, the covers feature a CNC- machined finned top and are TIG- welded for a leak-proof fit. The SBC version is available in silver-anodized and black-coated finishes. Small- block Ford valve covers are available in black, and all three have a finned top plate for a retro appearance.

The setup starts with a brand-new LT1 aluminum cylinder block and replaces the stock gray cast iron cylinder liners with stronger, centrifugally cast ductile iron liners offered rough-bored to 4.120 inches or finish-honed to 4.125 inches or 4.130 inches. The ductile iron sleeves provide added flexibility.
