    Default intake manifold gasket set Dorman vs Felpro?

    having a hard time choosing between the 2, i am leaning towards buying the dorman gasket set because it comes with the bolts and they have it in stock at the auto parts store, but then again i have read some really good reviews on the felpro gaskets. what type of gaskets do y'all like to use on your truck?

    I use Felpro for the majority, that's what my local parts store carries. If you can get the gaskets and bolts from Dorman as a set for a decent price, I'd say go with it. I had to clean all my bolts up with wirewheel. Couldn't find a manifold bolt set, and didn't want to take all my bolts up and match them with new ones.

    I've heard good things about Felpro and Dorman.

    I haven't had to replace my manifold gaskets, but I've always heard that if you don't want to do it again go with the Felpro set

    Did you use the MS98000T or the MS90131?

    "For centuries, the battle of morality was fought between those who claimed that your life belongs to God and those who claimed that it belongs to your neighbors -- between those who preached that the good is self-sacrifice for the sake of ghosts in heaven and those who preached that the good is self-sacrifice for the sake of incompetents on earth. And no one came to say that your life belongs to you and that the good is to live it." - John Galt, Atlas Shrugged

    I absolutely agree! Return the 131's and get the 98000T.
