Got my new sub-frame cleaned and por-15ed, and I only have to track down a cherry-picker to hold my engine in place so I can swap the frames out. I figure that while I have the oil and transmission pans exposed I will replace the gaskets, and hopefully stop the leaks. I picked up some rubber gaskets from Napa, but my roommate is telling me that rubber gaskets are not the shit. I don't want to put some inferior gaskets on the car, so I'd like some feedback.
Obviously rubber gaskets must work, since they are being sold regularly. That being said, I'm sure that rubber and cork both have their pros and cons. I got rubber gaskets for both the oil and transmission pans since it seems to me that rubber will give a tighter fit, but then again, I haven't done much research on the subject. Does anyone know something I don't on this matter?
