    I used one on mine not drilled but I’m going to second time around.. it sealed and I didn’t have tempature issues . I actually overheated my ski a couple times cause of a bad Thermostat but I thought maybe it was the coolant trying to burp through. I think they are great !

    Of coarse. I would certainly check it with a straight edge once apart. It seems like the original head gaskets on these are failure prone. The 300 appears to have some extra seal ability with that applied orangeish coating. it would appear that I am losing coolant into #3 cylinder only.

    The 215/255 OEM head gaskets are not prone to failure. Its not going to hurt to use a 300 gasket, but if you have other problems, the 300 gasket is not going fix it.

    The German made OEM head gasket is what you should be using. It works very well.

    Made in Germany (DE) is written on my OEM BRP head gasket package.

    This still the consensus to use this(300 head gasket)? Need to do a head gasket on a 2004 rxp 215, wonder if I should use this or the oem 215 one, using arp studs

    Using studs and the 300 gasket should be Bullitt proof...well as long as you don't get any detonation....and as long the head is flat...

    I wonder if my rotax racing (no knocK) is causing detonation, thus a head gasket leak
