    That's confusing. I don't see how gaskets that fit the ls2 can fit the ls3. The ls3 has a bigger bore than the ls2. I would get the 6.0 ones or message Mike at the ws6store and ask.

    Was just informed I need to use the LS2 style gaskets or LS9. Both have same compressed height only difference is the LS2 has 4 layers while the LS9 has 7 layers. Informed the LS9 is better and has lease chance of blow out.
