Default Recommendations for header gaskets.

I have some LT's sitting in my garage and R&R coming up in a couple days. What do you guys use for a no leak seal?

Thanks!

After trying kooks gaskets, brand new GM MLS gaskets, I finally got them to seal with Fel pros from Autozone. I also used them on my LSX Mustang without issue.

Kooks gaskets suck. Felpro's for sure.

OEM gaskets work great with the Kooks. I didn't even try to use the Kooks gaskets.

I reused my stock gaskets. I just cleaned any carbon off of them with some B12 chemtool cleaner and steel wool.
