I have a header gasket leak on the passenger bank somewhere so it looks like I am off to autozone tomorrow. Are those layered aluminum gaskets worth anything or should I go with copper/other?
Fel Pro HP gaskets
Steel Core Laminate
I have a set thats over 3 years old, I have reused them several times.
Looks like what Al is talking about is header gaskets made the same way as manifold gaskets. Looks like the ones I will buy!:yes: This engine bay is getting mighty hot already!I have always had good luck using just the individual exhaust manifold gaskets on headers.
a good idea is to retighten the header bolts AFTER you install the headers and gaskets and run them thru a heat cycle. Often times people will go tighten them when they're hot and when everything cools the bolts are loose.
