    I prefer Bison gaskets. Soak them in water for 10 minutes, then install them. Start it up for a few minutes, then re-tighten the bolts, check them in a week and you'll never have to worry about them again. /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif

    header bolts (spring for the stage 8 fasteners check out their website)

    gaskets (get the deadblow aluminum or copper) they are pricey but they wont leak and seal forever

    add these together and you have an unstoppable combo (well actually unleakable)
