So I got a 6 to 1 header and I want to make sure that I install it good and tight. I have heard that using the Permatex copper stuff is good. Does the kind of gasket matter?
Should I try to spray some of that high-heat ceramic stuff onto to it before the install so it won't rust? What do I need to pull to make the installation easier?

thanks everyone

factory gasket

I would use a factory gasket or order a gasket from the place you got the headers.......6 into 1 headers that I have seen do not have flush flanges where they meet the head. The exhaust tubes tend to stick out from the flat face side that tightens up to the head, causing you to think the header is tight on the gasket and causing an exhaust leak....this is what happened to me anyways, and I gave those away and got the two piece headers. As for those coatings not a lot of them will stick to those headers unless the have been factory coated. The guy that has my old set had 3000 degree paint blister on the headers.
