As far as I'm able to find, they are only making the performer copy.
The RPM2 and Victor they don't make.
btw you realise that the RPM2 upper must be used with the RPM2 lower because the ports are bigger than the old performer/rpm1 lower which are one and the same. The only thing you could do is port the performer lower to match. I believe the bolt pattern is slightly different but it's still useable.

Not quite true. I know because when i was chasing an inlet gasket for between the upper and lower Rocket only had one for a Victor. It fitted perfectly, the ports are the same size and the bolt pattern is the same. The performer and Victor use studs to mount the upper, the RPM11 uses bolts. That seems to be the only difference as far as i can tell.

That's interesting, I had a Victor and it's ports were much bigger than those of a performer.

i can tell you now that the rpm11 and the victor have totally different bottoms. theres noway the gasket off a victor would would fit on the rpm11. And between the rpm and the rpm11 port size is different

Hey Greg,
I think what's happened with Bretts' experience is that rocket called it a victor gasket when in fact it was not.
