Those chrome headers look great under the hood, and boy did they wake up your engine! You love driving your car and showing it off and then one day it starts, an annoying ticking sound coming from under the hood. You've got a header a leak, and now instead of getting complements on your ride all you hear is "What's that strange noise?" Unfortunately this scenario is all too common with conventional fiber header gaskets. Once they go through a few heat cycles they compress, and if you're not diligent tightening header bolts, you can end up with a leak. The hot exhaust pressure pushes past the gasket, burns a pathway and then you hear the ticking noise. They can also stick to the headers and develop leaks as the header expands and contracts during heat cycling.
Replace fiber gaskets or don't use in them in the first place. Instead use these premium steel core graphite gaskets from BBK. The flexible graphite conforms better than fiber to surface irregularities, for a better seal, and graphite's lubricating properties will prevent the gasket from sticking to the headers. With a rugged steel core for strength, these gaskets can withstand the high exhaust gas temperatures. And they're ideal for use with BBK headers because the exhaust port openings are matched to the header openings, to prevent exhaust gas restriction.
The BBK Premium Header Gasket Set is backed by a 1-year limited warranty against defects in materials or workmanship, as long as the product was installed according to BBK guidelines.
