Default pretty lame

so about 2 weeks ago i keep hearing a weird ticking noise adn i got scared i damaged my motor, today i took off the headers and realized that a huge chunk outa my gasket was missing, turns out i had the fattest exhaust leek known to man and every header bolt was loose, haha make sure you have the metal gaskets if you do the header swap, i learned the hard way with the shitty paper ones
