    Given that you can use the same headgasket on 81mm and 83mm bores, kinda tallies. Far as I recall it were the 1850cc with 85mm bores that require a different head gasket.

    I've seen them fitted on 83.79mm engines (which is +0.110" over std xflow size and approx 1712cc).
    They are very close to overhanging the bores in places though if not placed exactly - if you don't get the gasket exactly right and it moves while installing you may get an issue.

    The partno. is 61-24405-20 and the Victor Reinz catalogue states it has a diametre of 83.5 mm.
    So just on the limit for a 83.5 mm bore / 1700cc engine.
