Need the best gaskets out there in the majority opinion to use. I have JBA's on my car, had them for a year (no Cracks!!!) but do have a gasket leak. Chris

I was thinking Bassani stainless steel, with re-usable inserts. And yes the Stage 8 locking header bolts. Chris

I know people here like the stage 8 bolts but there is no way I would use them.
They are way to short IMO especially with the thick flanges on the JBAs. It would be very easy to strip out the thread in the head because the bolts aren't long enough.
I would use the Ford studs so you can bottom the studs and get the benefit of ALL the threads in the head, and use the Ford gaskets. IMO

Well for over $50 i hope they are reuseable. But i really dont care, just as long as they seal the first time around. And Steve, clean out your PM list, its FULL. Chris

Well, the adds in JEGS and SUMMIT say they are re-useable and I haven't heard anyone have any problems with them.

Yeah, I got a notice about my PM's.....deleted a bunch last nite. *LOL*

Later.

Best gasket? The one attached to something other than JBAs.

They aren't worth the trouble of a day's worth of time to install.

Because you will be doing it at least 2 more times.

JBAs suck and until JBA proves me otherwise, their "headers" are crap.
