Paper gaskets are paper gaskets.

Bite the bullet and buy true ford oem metal gaskets! That's what I should have done, now I find myself having to do this job again. Remember; Metal > paper!

will this fit on a 2002 GT stock intake manifold I'm buying a Ford Racing intake manifold for my 02 GT but it doesn't come with gaskets will this fit.


  • It should, I don't see why it wouldn't. I used them with my Mac Ceramic Long Tube Headers and they were a perfect fit.

    Some great gaskets

    These Ford Racing header gaskets are made of very tough material and have a percise cut for perfect fitting. I chose these header gaskets because they come from a reliable company who know about Mustangs the best. After installing them, the was a noticable powergain due to my old gaskets having leaks in them. These gaskets are well worth the money. Thanks again American Muscle for selling me great products!!

    4.6l Header Gasket

    I bought some long tube headers to put on my Mustang, and the first thing I noticed was how cheap the gaskets were that came with the headers. So I picked these up, they're a Ford Racing product so I figured they would be pretty good. They're made of a soft durable material with a metal center. Creates an excellent seal, no leaks anywhere. I would suggest putting some high temp rtv silicone in between the gasket and head/header flange just to get a perfect seal. Excellent product, very happy with them.

    Great product

    I bought a set of these after my old ones cracked and started leaking. I have had them on for a little over 3 months and so far I have not had any more leakage at the headers. They fit great and seemed tougher than the general gaskets seen at the auto store. Very satisfied.

    No problems

    Got MAC long tube headers. Got these to because the ones that come with headers are a little cheap. No problems so far. American Muscle is amazing on fast shipping. Worth waiting a little longer to make sure the job is done right!

    Perfect Fit

    I just did my headers 2 weeks ago and they were a perfect fit everything lined up as intended. I only drive the car once a weekend on average so I can't say anything on dependability, but so far so good!

    They Suck

    I bought these around March of 2013 and they didn't last much. It is 4th of July and i'm searching for new ones already. Fitment is great but the material just plain sucks. they didn't last more than 4 months and now i have an exhaust leak from my right header. If i was you, i wouldn't buy these and look for a better one made from bbk

    Worth it

    The gasket it self is a good quality product, I was expecting more of a metal gasket, it sealed good. I did have to modify it slightly to clear my dipstick with my headers. All through love it would buy again.

    Stops leaks in there tracks!

    I purchased some bbk shorty headers and the gasket that comes with them is ok but in the past I've had issues with leaks so this time around I decided to go with a better gasket. With these you can't go wrong. I've had my bbk shorty tuned length ceramic coated headers, magnaflow tru x x pipe " no cats " and magnaflow catback system instaled now for about a month and no leaks. It sounds great and the performance over the stock system is insaine. I added a sct tune before the exhaust and added in the exhaust after. So the sct tune plus the above mentioned parts. Your results may very but I had a 31 hp gain. very happy with my system. A+++
