    1 Top Rated Question

    Do I need a gasket between my BBK shorty headers & my h pipe? I have BBK shorty headers to h pipe & flow master muffler & new tail pipes. Installed new gasket behind headers. All new bolts to connect system but still sound like a leak between header & pipe connection. What gasket do I need because the felpro ms 90000 doesn't fit. Please help

    • Whatever gaskets are necessary should have come with the product. If you need a new one the best bet would be to contact BBK directly in order to get the gasket specifically designed for that match up.

      BBK Header Gaskets - 1-5/8 in. (79-95 5.0, 5.8)

      The fit was great! No leaks and proper set up for the BBK headers. Center crush metal for an outstanding seal like fel-pro.

      Excellent buy!

      These BBK header gaskets were a perfect fit, like a glove fit!! Perfect! Just had to loosen the old header bolts and remove the nasty old gaskets, scrape some gunk off the ports, place the new gaskets in position and along with the help of some new 3/8 header bolts they're nice and tightly sealed with absolutely NO leaks. They fit perfect, seal very nicely and are well worth the money! Thanks AM

      Only way to beat a header leak

      My car developed a header leak due to header bolts that worked their way out. These did the trick in combination with my locking header bolts

      Quality Piece - Can NOT beat the price.

      Developed in a leak in my 20-year-old header gaskets and ordered these. Quality graphite/steel mesh construction and the fitment was better than the ones that were originally on there. They are true to the 1 5/8 dimension but the BBKs also opened up enough to not restrict the exhaust port flow on the tops and bottoms of the ports. I only had a leak on one side (driver's side - so I only used one) but based on the quality of the product and the better-fitting port alignment, I'm contemplating doing the other side as well.
