    Header leak?

    I jus blew a header gasket today, and i think a bolt got loose and blew a part out of it but i was talking to a guy with a supercharged truck and he gave me a remflex gasket and said i would have no probs well it broke but since he had 12 lbs of boost i dont? would normal gasket be ok? or should i wait? the car has a 588 lift cam, headers, exhaust, etc. i dont know if you need that info?

    A normal gasket would work fine. Just make sure you're tightening the header bolts from the middle outwards. BTW, Remflex is the best gasket I've ever used, so if you wanna wait for one to be shipped, I would go that route and you will have piece of mind knowing that is on there

    The stock GM exhaust gaskets are actually one of your best options. I used them when I installed my Kooks and threw the supplied gaskets away.
