But is this intended to have a gasket? Doesn't appear to be much area for clamping a gasket on the mating face of the exhaust port.... where gaskets are narrow they tend to blow out no?

I would peen or grit the faces to give more grip to the gasket material I think....

No gasket on the Mintor. O-ring.

I bought a header from topdawg, and it comes with a nice stud and nut for the hard to reach bolt. Very nice touch.

There is no official word on wether or not there will be a Mintor 240 quad, anything you hear right now is only a rumor. If they were to make one, it would only improve upon the already killer 220 quad.
