    Tip for Using Aluminum Gasket\'s

    Wes told me to try this and I had allready dropped the truck off to have new collectors put on it but the guy told me I didn't need them. He said that he let it get good and hot and tightened everything up, and no leaks /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif . He said that with aluminum you have to let it get hot and then tighten it up to seal it up. I am a happy camper now that I didn't have to spend any more money on this. Thanks Wes /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    Uhh... Yea never mind they are still leaking /forums/images/icons/smirk.gif . I will Look into Walker Acustic Sealant over the weekend. Maybe I can get it sealed up with that. And I got my Stage 8 Locking header bolts so I won't have to tighten them every other day now.
