I did a quick search for the sce gasket. 100 bucks for a gasket?? Is there any company that sells it as a kit? I found a cp 11.5:1 734 piston with acp cylinder and cometic gaskets for 450.
The cometic gaskets are known to have issues. SCE is the only way to go.
Keep in mind if using a Chinese cylinder opposed to a reworked oem, the cylinders often need a bunch of work before you can assemble the engine.
Surfaces are often not flat, bore not round, holes not drilled and/or tapped, dowel pin holes drilled too shallow. That’s the difference between a $100 cylinder and a $400 cylinder.
It’s not just a simple direct swap.
