felpro makes header gaskets???? i have the same problem the best thing is make sure there is no sealer involved no matter what it is. the "sealer" helps it to slip out i got mine cheap at o'riellys 13 bucks for both sides i believe

"01mineralgrey6" is right .. header gaskets are almost always inferior to factory exhaust manifold gaskets.

Steel core graphite faced gaskets tend to be the best for use in header applications.

The steel core helps prevent blow out and the graphite facing allows movement cause by the differences in expansion rates between the aluminum head and steel header flange.

But if you are stuck using paper header gaskets (old tech) then soak them overnight in water and install them wet.

Not a clue. I don't even know what the factory gaskets look like off hand. Just years of experience with other engines that form the basis of my statements. I'll dig around and see what I can find out though.
