    You dont want too!! you can get ones from advanced autoparts tho


    Owning a 9 sec ricer is like coming out of the closest: at first you'll surprise everyone, but in the end you're still gay

    The stockers hold up well, if there not bent or damaged you can re-use them, Just dont use paper gaskets, most people dont recommend that because of the chance they may leak. Personaly i have reused them on a few Long tube swaps but its your call.

    I would say check with your local dealer and pick up some stock gaskets but if you cant wait then i would re-use the old metal gaskets if they are in good shape...
    Its your call though.

    You can reuse the stockers but honestly with $900 headers you should spend the $20 for new ones... GM gaskets are the way to go used or new

    I re-used my old GM ones for 5 years without a leak. Could of re-used them again with my H/C build but decided they did their 8 year job. New ones cost me $17 a piece. Don't use that metal foam crap, or the stupid cork crap. GM FTMFW!!!!!
