Header Collector Gaskets

A header collector gasket is used on an aftermarket header, and is placed in between the engine, and the header, before bolting the two components together. Adding this soft gasket in between the two pieces of metal will create a much better seal which will help ward off exhaust leaks which are annoying and hard to diagnose/fix. These gaskets are normally around .050” thick so that as the header and engine are tightened together, the soft gasket actually deforms in between the two pieces to make the seal. Because of this deformation, most collector gaskets should only be used once to ensure a proper seal every time. Since the header and that part of the engine is vulnerable to extremely hot temperatures, the gasket is made out of a material such as copper which will not melt when subjected to that kind of environment. The shape of a gasket collector gasket may vary but they are normally shaped like a triangle with one large center hole and three small outer holes were the bolts or studs go through.
