« on: January 26, 2007, 05:49:54 PM »
right, im building a bridgeport motor and need apex seals (as im sure Era knows :)). I want to go single peice, but as carbon and steel are roughly the same price, which should i go for? i want some decent revs, but its also gotta be streetable!

regardless what tips they will be streetable. Reworx and I think Dragon just run 2mm Mazda, but they can afford to strip often and replace whats necessary.
Gary Gooding had a very powerful engine for sale a bridgy and it has the PTS 2 piece seals in it. They are used by just about most of the top circut and drag cars around the world and wont break if the car does let go, causing less damage.

Carbon apex seals made by Mazda are the way to go for naturally aspirated REVS!
