Head Gasket

I normally buy at Audi Zentrum Flensburg, as they are half the price of 
Danish Audi.
 I guess the price is about 80 € but is is some time ago.
034Motorsport have a lot of items for Audi including their own cuppergasket.

I rebuilt the original WR block from 83 and the pistons found inside were 3. 
over size,
telling me the head have been off several times.
I think I just screw in the ARP's using 2 nuts (or was it a inside hex) 
after changing
the internal water-return to accept the 3B gasket and head.
