Yeah, yeah, I know...... they came with the car....

Before I pick up the telephone and call Summit or Jegs for whatever gaskets they stock to replace the two that are leaking....

Is anyone else blessed with these headers?
What gaskets do you use? I want to do this only once.


TIA

What gaskets?? Retorque the bolts when the engine and headers are hot. Wear gloves

Yes, there are gaskets on them now.....didn't think I should skip the gaskets, as I've read once they've been used surfaces can warp.

Of course they look like cardboard and are yukky.

Since this is not a stock set-up, what torque?

I mean retighten. If the surfaces are that untrue that they leak with out gaskets. They will leak soon with new gaskets also. Felpro
#MS90508 will fit.

cause I know it works and I think it sticks better than the copper which tends to slide out.

I glued my Hookers on with it and it lasted three years until I found a mullet that wanted them.

The #1400 gaskets will work also. But at $25.00 a set compared to $6.00 a set for the
MS90508 Your choice. Like I said a if both surfaces are not flat either gasket will blow out.
