Keep in mind I had already worked on sealing up the all the seams and the lower vent door on the right side of it. My biggest issue was that my FB door is bent and leaked really bad. I partially fixed that with a seal of aluminum foil. The Nomex gasket I have should deal with it completely.
Mine is pretty good, its an older one. I can get it running where I want it, like my other stickburner the way it is.
