        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.

          out of 5 stars

            They do their job and don’t leak and I doubt they will as long as the bolts stay tight. I got these because I picked up a nice used set of bbk headers and I wasn’t exactly impressed with the quality of these gaskets. When they came they had a crease which I smoothed out and luckily didn’t leak and all the edges were rough and I’m not sure I would consider them premium. Next time I’m going with the ford ones because they’re cheaper and probably will be higher quality and do the same job. I still gave 4 stars because they worked fine but I can’t give 5 stars because I would personally go with the ford ones after purchasing these.

            These gaskets matched the shape of the header way better than the others and the overall fit and seal was awesome.

            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.
