For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.
The purpose of this sticky is to explain the "Advanced Search" function because it is much more powerful and is the best choice when researching information.

When you log on to the site a list of options is shown in a line at the top of the page. One option is labelled "Search", use this option (NOT the search box lower down on the right).

Header collection gaskets

Post  acorad on Thu Jan 17, 2013 5:25 pm

What kind of header collection gaskets are you all using? I've just had a second one blow out, it almost looks like some kind of compressed paper material (maybe asbestos?).

I read on LS1tech.com that the original metal gaskets are better.

I had repeated problems with the gaskets blowing out after trying the white paper looking ones, the steel mesh gray versions and the solid aluminum ones. What I found was the exhaust pipe flange must be centered on the gasket or it will blow a hole in the gasket. You have to slightly tighten the three bolts and use a screwdriver between the flange and the pipe to center.

Once I figured out the centering problem the the steel mesh versions have held up well.

Yup! Same thing here except I used alignment weld rings tacked to the pipe side which centered the gasket.

That is a ball style collector, The ball goes into the header flange and then you just weld your exhaust pipe onto the end of that.
