Most any name brand is fine.The important part is the header bolts,locktite (blue not red) and re-tighten for the first ten times the engine is warm.Also an old hot rodders trick is to soak the gaskets in WATER until they are soft and then install.This is how I do it 3 or 4 times aweek and it works well.This allows you to "smush: tje gasket and get all of the flex out the first time.SCOTT 936-756-2535

step away from the paper gaskets !!!

buy a set of copper or percys dead soft gaskets you will not be sorry . i ran paper header and collector gaskets in my 66, i was changing something out every few months it drove me INSANE. i swicthed to copper gaskets and i havent touched them in months.

and yes invest in a set of stage 8 header bolts as well .
