After you click on the upper search option, a drop down box appears. At the bottom of this box is a radio button marked "Advanced …

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.
