    When the cylinder head and gasket are torqued to a block, the bores will naturally distort since they are hollow cylinders. A torque plate simulates the cylinder bore’s distortion, thus allowing the machine shop to hone the cylinders with the simulated distortion. Honing with a torque plate generally yields better ring seal, compression, and can reduce oil consumption. Using a torque plate with the same gasket that will be used during final assembly is also a good idea whenever possible. A different brand or head gasket model might distribute the sealing force around the cylinder in different locations and distort the cylinder differently. You also want to use the same studs or bolts that will be used during final assembly since different fasteners will have a different clamping force.

    We use a torque plate on every engine we build and so does every winning engine builder. If your rebuilding for serious performance, this is crucial to ensuring the best possible finished product!
