Re: any idea where i can get gaskets for my header ?
On the head , just use the original replacement oem head to manifold metal gasket , and coat the header side with a light film of orange Permatex . I've run mine this way for three years, had the head off like five times, and it never leaks a bit . I also studded the entire side of head , makes it easier to bolt it up . On the collector , I got a dead soft copper collector gasket from Summitt , they are reusable , and with fine thread locking bolts they won't work loose and blow out . I just lengthened my exhaust out to the rear , and put a new Turbo 2 Cherry Bomb on it , now I can actually hear the radio , and the motor runs cooler . It also dropped the powerband down into the midrange better, so that was a nice bonus .
