Hey everybody, i'm preparing for my spring installation of all my parts, fidanza aluminum flywheel, centerforce clutch, BBK 75mm throttle body, steeda tri-ax and quadrant, and headers. I have a set of BBK unequals and I want to know the best kind of header bolts and the best gaskets to put on. I need to order soon so i can get my project started in early april so let me know soon guys.

Doesn't matter what brand name header bolts, just get the long ones and lock washers. I think ARP sells a kit that comes with both. And a set of Felpro header gaskets unless you have aftermarket heads.

My 2 cents worth.

i like the copper header gaskets, if they loosen up and you get an exhaust leak you can retighten them up and you're good to go, plus they don't blow out

My vote would be for a graffite gasket and locking header bolts. I don't think you need to go to the extreme of stage 8's. You're going to have to re-torque them after a few heat cycles anyways.
