Header Flange Gaskets

A header flange gasket is used on an aftermarket header, where the pipe and engine, are bolted together. Adding this soft gasket in between the pipe and engine 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 flange 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 flange gasket may vary depending on the header used but most are circular with a small hole on either side were the studs or bolts go. Each tube may have its own individual flange gasket or they can all be connected by one long gasket that has excess rubber between the pipes. Having a gasket for each pipe is an advantage because if one of the gaskets go bad, you don’t have to pull apart the entire header to fix it.
