Will a head gasket off a b2200 with 8 valves fit on a mx6 with 12 valves?
because I bought two turbos today a tbird and a stock 88 turbo and the guy gave me a felpro head gasket because he replaced it and a week later the engine broke and he was replacing the engine and gave me the old head gasket just incase it fits on my mx6 that has a warped head or a blown head gasket. Dont know which yet?

The 12V head will go onto the 8V block so I don't see why the 8V gasket would not work on the 12V block.

The only difference that I can think of that there may be is the coolant hole sizes.
Since the coolant comes out of the 12V at the rear end of the head and the 8V comes out the front.
The coolant holes in the gasket around the cylinders will be different sizes to compensate.

Check out a picture of each on E-bay to check.

This question ranks up there with should I use a dirty needle to take drugs. Head gaskets should not be reused period. I do not care if it fits. The point here is you want to repair your car with a used head gasket from an engine that "broke a week later" to fix a bad gasket or cracked head.

Buy a new gasket set and get your head check.
