    Alright..........I got my JBA Headers on finally, but have exhaust leaks where the collector bolts to my factory Y-Pipe. I put the Stage 8 header bolts on to prevent backing out, but the JBA's have the "FireCone" as the collector and say you just bolt it up with no gasket. Has anyone else out there had this problem, and if so how did you fix it? Any help would be great.

    Mine liked to leak at the head so I went to a copper gasket and that stopped but I have never had a prob at the pipe.

    I understand the jeep thing I drive a BLAZER!!

    at the collector there is a company who sells 1/8th" thick soft aluminum gaskets which work great and are reusable.
    I have them on my truck and love them.
