I have a sneaking suspicion that my ICS is stuffing up because once my ED has got to proper operating temp it starts to idle rough when I stop at traffic lights etc. The bolts are nice and tight and there doesn't appear to be any leaks from the gasket itself so I'm thinking the ICS might be buggered. I have a spare one that came from a car that was idleing perfectly so I'm gonna swap it over.....Any idea where to get a ICS gasket from?
Cheers.

I got some gasket paper for free at Repco when I bought some other stuff and cut one up myself. Works well at the moment.

I have heard some people just using thin cereal box like cardboard and it worked.

phong =P~

Cheers for the replies.....Looks like the old Cornflakes box might come in handy.
