ok kool. I just have to check later. I did put the bbk header back on but when i did have it off i tried looking for that carbon spot but couldnt see anything. Actually to tell you the truth i think just under the #7 port i could see what looked like burn or carbon on the head, i figured that was probably where my leak was. I wonder if a shop can re-surface the header?

You could probably save 8 or 10 bucks by going with a summit racing aluminum or copper gasket. Metal gaskets hold up a little better than the usual cardboard crap.

Similar to the aluminum gaskets I was referring to. They are soft and thicker than standard gaskets. I went through two sets of cheap header gaskets and they always ended up leading after a few months. Once I installed the aluminum ones they sealed for good and never had a problem the rest of the time I had the car.

Don't F around over a couple of dollars. Percy's = win. I buy from summit since their support is legendary and unwavering.

I'd also toss the BBKs in the trash can, but that's a different rant for another time.

ok. but my header leak is instant! Right after I install them turn car on and give it gas and there it is... tick tick. At idle you cant even hear it.
