    2008 9-3 Head gasket thickness

    Hi, I'm currently replacing head gasket on my 2008 Saab 9-3 2.0t. I order it from GSF along with other parts but they send me a gasket for b207e engine and it should be for b207r. Compering with the old one is slightly thinner and it's two layers when the old one has three.
    Is it's gonna be fine to fit it or better order a different gasket?

    I'm not so sure it will be fine but I haven't changed one.
