1988 944 Turbo S Head gasket

Engine

Vehicle Information: Model(924/944/968): 951 S; Year: 1988; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 148K;

This car is a 951 S with very few engine mods (Lots of chassis mods) other than a boost enhancer. It is used in Autocross, Time Trials and a little Club Racing. It has a history of blowing head gaskets (one per year). The last one installed was a "Wide Fire", which worked for a year. It is possible that the block is not perfectly flat as we cannot imagine what else could cause these failures. I do not think it has increased total boost. We have heard about Cometic Brand gaskets for this application and wondered if anyone had any experience with them or any other ideas about the problem.
