Hello everyone   Has anyone ever a made any custom perfect fit gaskets for magna intake so we don't have to use rtv and have extra holes and double up on block of plate gasket  l looked up a few companies around me that make gaskets and thought what if l draw up exactly what we need and have them make a few  How many people would be interested in one? Is it worth the effort?

I found bunch of these but that large coolant port in the back bugs me and they look like paper gaskets vs nice quality felpro material w steel shim in between  l am thinking quality product that bolts on first time and lasts leak free permanently and doesn't have to come from Australia

I ordered a couple magna sets from Australia many years back. They worked well, but I still had to create come filler gasket for the rear port. Getting them shipped from AUS was expensive too!
You make these and I'll buy a couple sets.

I'd say call FelPro ( On a telephone, no text or email)  & see if you can buy the blank material. I'm sure it's propriatary, so no one else will have the same.
Get some hole punches & make your own. I kind of doubt any company is going to spend the cash to make custom stamps, for the sale of a few dozen gaskets.
But hey.........Call the ones around you that you mention & see what they say. Does not hurt to ask.

Most companies any more use water jets to cut them  it's as simple as altering the cnc program to make what you want.Bradrock we think alike l already contacted felpro through e mail and will keep contact till l get a firm yes or no answer lol  l also have been looking into alternative materials similar to felpros  sh.. if felpro just left the area uncut where the fuel pump block of goes that gasket would be close to perfect.    Will get it done!

Awesome video  love that kinda s... they most likely use the same process for our intake gaskets w one piece of metal between two sheets of blue  well will keep trying maybe we find some diferent composite material for our aplication that just needs some precise cutting
