I finally got my BBK longtubes and Mid pipe from Summit and i didnt know they came with gaskets so i ordered some copper ones, I guess my question is should i use the copper ones or the gaskets that came with the headers? also if anyone else has BBKs let me know, tell me what you think of um.

F**king Gourgous!!! Your Neighbors are going to love you lol! Looks Amazing. I dont know if GM is the same as Blue Oval but I have being running fel-pro gaskets on my Longtubes for three years with no problem and thats what the header company request that I run.

Ditto. Stock ford MLS type exhaust gaskets and Stage 8 locking bolts.
I agree with this. The Ford Racing MLS type are the way to go. +1 to stage 8 locking bolts. If you do it right you will have to drop the K member. This takes time an patience, but is not that complicated, and is not a job you want to do twice.

Also, to answer you question, I have BBK's and love them.

ok so the BBK gaskets are out. F8L told me to look at either copper ones or some other material that slips my mind right now.

Everyone, I mean everyone told me to stick with the factory gaskets, so thats what I did.
So far, so good.

I have a set of Percy's locking header bolts if you want them. $50. plus shipping new.
Yours for $45. shipped.

I hear using the stage 8's can be a pain in the ass.

Lastly, my car was no louder after the header install.
