Default Ej207 valvecover gaskets???

Can you use USDM valvecover gaskets with these? If so, the ej205 gasket or ej255/7 gaskets

I am pretty sure you need 207 valvecover gaskets. I don't think the 205/255/257 will work.

The EJ207 valve cover gaskets are much different.
The EJ207 and EJ257 heads are not much alike.
- Different combustion chambers
- Different ports
- Different cam cap design
- Different valve covers
- Different valve cover gaskets
- Different cam position sensors

Rallispec or IAPerformance

as [email protected] said, they are completely different than EJ257 or EJ205 heads in all ways that matter.
