I was going to finish paying for my CIA Headers next month and was wondering which EARLs gasket I would need. I saw a few posts for both of these and I was wondering which one is the best fit or correct gasket. Thank you.

I just got mine, and before I did I asked Dan about gaskets he recommended.

He told me traditional Fel-Pro's were just fine.

I saved a print out from one post (It was in the exhaust manifold bolt discussion (Grade 8s, Vs. Stainless Vs. ARPs)...etc

Someone had mentioned using an expensive brand of Earl's ($45+), and I asked dan if I should choose these and he told me he never had a problem with Fel-Pros.

I've had the best luck with MR. Gasket multi layer gaskets. But any copper or aluminum gasket would probably be fine....

I actually didn't like my perceys seal 4 goods. The aluminum layers were too thin and seemed to crush endlessly. After a bolt came loose (even though I was retightening them all the time) one actually blew out after not that long of a time. The MR. Gaskets have much thicker, stronger feeling aluminum layers (perceys felt like tin foil) and I have had much better luck with them. They didn't require retightening nearly as frequently either after installing.

Which model did you end up using and having success with?

In my case I originally used the Mr. Gasket copper gaskets and had leaks on the the 1 and 3 cylinders. I would not recommend them.
