PostSubject: Shorty headers   Shorty headers I_icon_minitimeJuly 10th 2011, 8:42 pm

I got a set of shorty headers and installed them yesterday. 14 hours later i finished Suspect

Question: I used the header gasket that came in the box, now I'm getting a "burning rubber" type of smell after it warms up. Should I have used the OEM gasket i took off. Does anyone think this smell will go away after break-in. Should the gasket they sent me have been aluminum covered? I looked everywhere for an answer and can't find one. I think I read on here in a post that Shawn said NOT to use aftermarket header gaskets, but i couldn't find it. So I am unsure. This was a pain in the ass to do, but if I need to re-do it I will. Any input would be helpful to me and to anyone else in the future wanting to tackle this type of project.

Congrats on the install. You should have asked here first, yes you should have bought new oem gaskets. The smell might go away, but those aftemarket gaskets are garbage.

What he said. OEM are the way to go as far as the gaskets go. The ones that came with the headers will leak very soon. I think the OEM ones are copper but either way they should not be rubber.

OK, Thanks a million guys. I will start the re-tear down tomorrow. It should go alot faster now that i know what to expect. By the way- it's a bitch and time consuming ..but the deeper growl is worth it.
