Overview: Have you every wondered why some exhaust manifold gaskets have slots? This video from Fel-Pro with blog commentary from Advanced Engine tells you why.

The Advanced Engine Challenge:

Sometimes as part of a repair you will need to remove the exhaust manifold. While a fairly simple task to do, putting it all back together could take a bit longer then you want. Slotted exhaust manifolds like the ones from Fel-Pro make it easier to slide the exhaust manifold gasket into place without having to deal will aligning the bolts, gasket and manifold.

The Advanced Engine Solution:

The slots on the edge of the Fel-Pro Exhaust gasket allow you to put two bolts in place first. And, then slide the gasket in. This saves time, energy, and frustration.
