    Good evening,

    I have been searching everywhere for these gaskets for my 96 Cobra from IMRC to head (aluminum IMRC). Every auction on ebay doesn't have them in stock. Mike R from Tousley cannot get them anymore (discontinued). Felpro is out of stock and the other one that Autozone has (starts with a V) are out of stock also. Any ideas? Last thing I am waiting on for this mystic build! The old ones aren't pretty and I don't want to risk it.

    Had the same issue when doing the IMRC deletes. Found the gaskets at Rockauto, made by a company called Victor Reinz - part #MS16272.

    They must be out of stock on these, I searched and it didn't come up either. You can email RA about the Victor brand, or buy them on ebay:
    Victor MS16272 Intake Manifold Set | eBay

    Victor reinz and felpro are the only two manufacturers that still make these, they have both been on backorder since december. Your best bet is to hunt someone online that still have some in stock.

    No problem, I ran into the same issue over the winter. I may even buy a few extra just in case they stop manufacturing them. :beer:
