I used a really thick gasket on my 40 when I put headers on. it was pretty expensive($50?) but definitely worthit If your interested PM and I will try and figure out who I bought it from and who used it.

My F engine not only sounds much healithier but has much better high end performance, made a big difference on the highway.

Sounds like a REMFLEX gasket, they're supposed to be one of the best.

I did this with great success too, make sure to use copper spray gasket material on both sides of both gaskets.

Thats it Randy!

I would recommend a remflex exhaust gasket before doubling up. probably cheaper too.

Good luck!
