gaskets

just bought bbk LT headers and xpipe. but the gaskets that came with the bbk headers are paper and metal. anyone know a site or store I can buy better gaskets from? ive heard that all metal gaskets are way better and don't cause exhaust leaks.

I reused my stock gaskets when I did headers on my old 3.7 & never had an issue. Not sure where to get new ones from tho.

Yeah you should be fine the stock gaskets are really good gaskets I was going to buy some from my local ford dealership but they told I would have to buy them from ford racing and I didn't want to wait for them to come in

I think he is referring to exhaust leaks.
