Back to the original question, the factory did use a head gasket on the C2 turbos. I would guess for a better seal. I have also seen the C2 gaskets used on high compression engines, and I used them on my 3.4 turbo rebuild. (3.3 turbo upgraded with RUF 3.4 p & c) It is probably a better answer than the O-ring that Porsche abandoned inthe late 70's.
But these are high compression or turbo engines. A basically stock 3.2 does not need these mods.
