Default ej22t headgasket question

so i'm putting a new headgasket in my car (pass side) and the replacement one i got isn't exactly the same. a couple of the larger ports on the upper side of the gasket don't overlap just right. so i went to my parts guy, whom i trust, and he looked again and said that's the one, and something about an improved design.

so, does this sound right?

thank.

well, i've done a little research, but pretty sure i just got the wrong one. not sure why, but between the ej22 and the T, i've seen like 3 different designs. i'm pretty sure the one i have is for an N/a though.

i'm ready to get going on putting everything back together, but i'd really like the correct headgasket is all.

EJ22T pistons clear the deck at TDC, so the head gasket is unique to that motor. It
's thicker than a N/A EJ22.

It's not thicker but it has different cooling passages.

the one i have does definitely have room for the pistons to come out a little. if it is indeed a revised design, then it seems like it should work.

There is no revised design and both pistons (NA and turbo) clear the deck by about 0.3 mm.

Have a camera?

You probably got a NA gasket. The turbo gasket has cooling passages which are symmetrical on the upper and lower part of the gasket whereas the NA gasket has differences between the upper and lower passages.

i know the HG for the turbo is supposed to be symetrical, but on mine has 2 long ones on the top, and 3 holes on the bottom, but spaced wider than the bottom holes of an n/a gasket.
