    The only thing better would be a new OEM gasket.

    it's which (selection), not witch (evil lady)...lol

    regardless of what brand you go with, you will want metal/copper compression fitting gaskets. those will provide the best seal for your header flanges to your cylinder heads

    Seal4Good

    I am in the process of changing my headers and purchased "Seal-4-Good". The old ones (OEM) appeared to be copper and probably could have used them. The Seal-4-Good compress really well. I haven't fired it up. Maybe tomorrow evening.

    FelPro

    The FelPros work and seal 20x better if you take the ULTRA COOPER Permatex and spread a thin bead with your fingers around port area........... Wait 15 mins. for it to set-up then install!!!!

    We have found it usually........Makes them last for multiple motor swaps......Unless the header flange in wrapped bad.

    That's my 2 cents.........!!!!!
    Don't be afraid of the bottle!!! Be afraid of your tune!!!

    Use the stock gaskets, no permatrex.
