There aren't any gaskets associated with the DV (deceleration valve). You're probably referring to the boost recirculation valve housing, where worn gaskets cause a clunky sound when getting on/off the throttle.

If you still are running with the stock IC and plan on going with something larger, then yes....a long neck IC will allow you to delete the boost recirculation assembly all together..with a few minor add-ons to complete the project.
Mark H. 1987 930, GP White, Wevo shifter, Borla exhaust, stock everything else. The result of a massive Pelicanite good will fire recovery effort. Truely an open book, ready for the slippery slopes to modification.
