            Not Impressed

            I ordered Pace Setter long tubes for my 96 Cobra and all the gurus recommended using Ford Racing header gaskets, so for $28 I said why not. They seemed fine upon seeing them but when I compared them to the gaskets that came with the headers they seemed much cheaper and flimsier.

            Header Gaskets

            130 miles so far and gaskets are good, thought they would be copper or metallic like the factory ones, but are all a composite material.

            Blew a gasket within a week

            Pretty disappointed in the quality. Headers are leaking after a week and the worst part is i have a 01 cobra so in order to swap a 20$ part i have spend another 300 plus to do so. Could just be unlucky but i highly doubt it

            Leak free and easy to install!

            After prepping the mating surface around the exhaust ports with a wire brush and scotch bright, I slipped these gaskets between the motor and new LT's with ease. With the header bolts torqued, I fired up the motor to check for leaks, and found nothing. Certainly can't go wrong with the price and quality of these Ford Performance gaskets!

            Some of the best gaskets you can get.

            I needed a set of header gaskets for my long tune header install, and these from Ford Racing are perfect! Very good quality and its a Ford Racing part with is a big plus for me!

            Good fit, good service!

            Ordered these when I realized I didn't have the right ones from another kit, anxious to get my motor finished and back in the car. They showed up a day early in great shape and fit well. Haven't driven the car a lot yet but so far no signs of exhaust leaks.

            A must have for headers install

            After removing the stock gaskets on my Cobra (42,000 miles), the gaskets are in pretty bad shape. I definitely recommend purchasing new gaskets. It's a cheap product that gives good quality. I haven't had any leaks from the headers at all
