There's a guy in upstate NY that bought a big piece of land and built a private racetrack. Read up on Wilzig racing manor to see some of the difficulties involved with neighbors, zoning, etc.

Thats a good brand,i personally prefer the rubber gaskets. If you are going to use the cork material make sure they are tighten down to specs.

Oh yeah,another good thing about this car is benz still makes parts for these. They are pricey but yeah.

Yeah I’ve had better luck with rubber gaskets. On the camino I did the rear main seal, oil pan, and valve cover seals with rubber gaskets which had leaks when I got the car. Haven’t had an issue ever since.

Only see Mr. Gasket on older Chev's. Think they're as old as a brand like Holley is.

And they better keep making parts for 126's. Since I got mine I saw one on the road and a clean black 560 parked downtown. Mass produced car but their either in the driveway or junk yard... "Keep em on the road" fellas...

replaced both my valve cover gaskets cuz they were leaky (which was reasonable for its age and i had no issues since. Getting ready to replace my intake manifold gaskets actually.

yeah they been around for some time. Way back thats what most manufacturers used because it was a cheap option.

thats true also. I seen one sitting infront of someones house for about 5 years,came back to that neighborhood and it was gone,hopefully not the junkyard . Cleanest sel i seen so far was this babyblue and silver bottom one with the monoblock wheels

I love jags, hell I owned a jag with that motor in it before the f type coupe even came out but with that said there is nothing that would make me take one over a 911. 911s just do EVERYTHING well and as you pointed out ........very very few cars equal the sound of a GT3 at full tilt and the SVR ain't it. Now of course my post is purely opinion based
I gotcha. Exhaust note is totally 100% subjective for people. Some love some cars exhaust, some love others. Look at the older Vipers (the convertible ones. No sound from that V10 (lots of people have said that). Then look at the older V10 M5, beautiful sound!! And then look at the LFA! That is pure early 2000s F1 music to your years!!! 😊

I'm not saying Porsches aren't great. They are. But it's a car that's not for everyone. And the one thing I do like about the F-Type, is that while a sports car, it has a bit of muscle car in it with that 5.0. I'm just shocked that exhaust is factory. Boggles my mind how that passed the beancounters, lol!!

But again, money no object, I'm not getting either. Both are fun, but for me, it would be a 2005-2006 Ford GT. And it needs to be stock! 👍
