Re: Hedman header gaskets ?

i have read on here that you should soak paper gaskets in water (i forget how long) before assembly.if the flanges are straight and you remember to retorque several times,they should be ok.
but since you sound like you hate exhaust leaks as much as i do,there are some new technologies on the market lately.dead soft aluminum header and collector gaskets from mr. gasket look real promising,as do the split lock header and collector bolts,kind of like a poly lock for your headers!anyone currently using either of these?
