^ Trace & cut up cardboard, make the 4 bolt mounting holes and cut out a perfectly round center hole, coat with both sides with FIPG and hope it holds up to engine heat. <Crazy, Just buy a new one. I did. $3.50 from Toyota.shaeff said:i just made one out of a corona beer carton. put a little FIPG on both sides, cut it out to shape. it works perfectly, and doesn't leak.
werewolves182 said:It looks just like all of those but none of those work. If its a Felpro gasket kit, I had the same problem. The metal one fits and leaks. And the other is obviously too small. I had to buy another. Either way I have 2 real throttle body gaskets and only need one so if you want ive got one for you. Just pay the shipping. PM me if your intrested.
velocityUNLEASHED said:what type of gasket does the throttle body need in between itself and the intake manifold? i found these in my gasket kit, but they don't fit exactly to the t. :rant2:
Poodles said:did it have all the gaskets on the turbo? like turbo to manifold and elbow, ect?
^ Most with some exceptions. Kit had a new s/s (original was copper) turbo to ex. manifold but not the turbo to elbow because I'm guessing you're suppose to break the turbo at the exhaust manifold and at the downpipe to elbow which I did not do because I had to replace my turbo. I just re-used the original copper turbo to elbow gasket since it looked fine once I cleaned it.
The kit did include a new downpipe to elbow gasket. The turbo oil feed/ return and water pipe mounting gaskets were included for turbo & block. Kit includes all the new copper and aluminum O ring type for the fuel system and turbo water pipe, the 2 metal seals at the banjo fitting at the back of the head and 2 metal oil pressure banjo bolt. It even included a new rubber O ring seal for the oil fill cap along with a new oil drain plug gasket.
^ I'd agree with you with the paper type gaskets used on the front cover, water pump etc. but IMO the Toyota furnished oil seals such as the camshafts, oil pump drive and the front/rear crank seals are of a better quality. Had the same "NOK" along with a rotation arrow as the originals I removed of which none were leaking with 115k miles. IMO, seals & gaskets are far too important to skimp on when doing a engine rebuild.KINGPIN33 said:I think the cheaper gaskets for everything else would be fine. But get the OEM toyota head gasket.
^Ok, Hack status rescinded, LOLshaeff said:i just did it to get by. (though, i'll admit, it's still in there over 1k miles later). i was troubleshooting my car when i got the swap done, and that was one of my problems. i was working out in my garage at 12:30am with spotlights all around me. after i finally found the problem (clogged fuel filter/softline), i fixed the leak in the manner i mentioned above. i have a new toyota gasket waiting to go in, but i installed my 11x8 oil cooler, and 180* oil T-stat today instead )
