    if you were to run a 20v in rwd with rwd water pump and setup pretty much as a 16v 4age would you use a 16v head gasket or a 20v head gasket???

    i had a look at the head gasket for a 20v and other than a bypass i have at the back of the head and the top hose outlet there isn't much in the way of alot o flow thru the head.

    just curious on peoples opinion in the matter

    If your whole cooling system is setup like a 16v, use the 16v gasket. I'm using one in mine...

    while that is correct it is a very easly misunderstood comment. Yours needs the 16v gasket because your cooling system is the only one of its kind on this whole forum. However anyone else using some kind of rear bypass (internal or external) for the water would still need to use the 20v gasket.
