Hmmm, just come across this via an advertisement, have any one of you ever heard of it and whats the difference (apart from the price) between this and the stuff we get in the small bottles say from battyre?

Thermagasket <---

no its shite, if it was this easy, we would all be using it, rather than going through the lenghty procedure of putting in a new gasket !

they sort of work for 500miles then break, i have heard that in the long run they do more dasmage than good, they can clog up you engine.

Yeah, i heard that too by quite a few people, just this one seems to do a hell of a lot more ie: repairs cracked heads, i was just wondering wether to bear it in mind for future reference.
Just the expensive price tag, but, it does come with a money back garuntee. smile ?

I suppose if you have a cracked head, then a try of it cant do much more damage lol.

The K-Seal doesnt damage anything in the engine or clog it up and people on the MGR forums have run it for 20,000 miles or more. Also, a mechanic on there took an engine apart and took photos to show how it had worked, the engine had done 10,000 with HGF repaired by K-Seal.

I cant see this doing everything it says on the tin so to speak, but its probably worth a try dependent upon price.

X2 theirs no easy solution,

as said before if it was that easy everyone wopuld be doing it.
an egg and all these other additives, can clog up the water channels and ultimately do more damage, leading to warped heads

its just these companies that come up with these miracle fixes, theres no such thing! if it needs a new head gasket then fit one!

and don't get me started on that liquid metal that you pour in your engine oil, and it fixes knocking bottom ends, cracked head, etc.
