what is your opinions on these head gaskets...
Hey everyone, I think the water holes on these so call genuine head gaskets are not sufficient. they are so small. won't these impede water circulation and eventually get blocked? The original head gaskets that the engines came with have they water holes the exact as on the blocks and head.

Am i missing something. I am considering drilling them out to a bigger size.

11115-16111 is for the 20v blacktop (AE111)
As for the holes size, they look pretty normal to me.

Comparing that head gasket to my spare big port Fel-Pro, there is not nearly enough holes for water passage. My gasket has a lot more of the smaller holes plus several more larger holes. I would exchange or return the gasket for a different manufactures gasket. That one looks like trouble! Dave W

11115-16111 IS an OEM head gasket. (and it look genuine to me)
Compare it to the 11115-16070 (16V) and you will see the holes are pretty much the same (size wise).

Now, if you want something "performance" oriented, go with a TRD 11115-AE001

On this one, yes the holes are bigger, but it's not designed for just your daily commute.

Worth adding, TRD Gasket requires both block and head to be skimmed/flat.
