Question Header Gaskets

I bought BBK ceramic coated shorty headers and was wondering what is the best gasket for these, or are the ones that come with them good? I want ones that will never leak.

"Mr Gasket" multi layer aluminum header gaskets are much better than stock types. The never leak thing is not assured, but you have a better chance of long life with the ones I mentioned. Good luck.
I think you can get the collector gaskets as well, another leak point.

In my defense, I was left unsupervised.

Are the OEM's reusable?

Don't know yet.

Here's four different ones to choose from... The Headman Gaskets look like it would cover the most area.

Don't reuse - they're cheap enough.

Parts out the wazoo - but still a lowly 2-valve
