    Use OEM people. They are triple layer steel with seal ring. Can't get any better than that.

    yes!

    i just installed the manifold w/ my old gaskets, and it appears to be leak free. Hopefully it stays that way. I've emailed subydude about this, and I'll let you know what develops.

    Gruppe-s has a 6 gasket set aswell as individual ones. Only gasket that was paper was the d/p to midpipe one. All others like factory but thicker metal(5x rather than 3 I believe). I have had no leaks aside from the paper gasket I mentioned. $59 shipped for complete set. SD will take care of you though. He's cool like that.

    The ones I recieved from Suby Dude were 5 ply except the header/head gaskets looked like the single ply OEM ones.

    my dyno engineering ones did the same thing. (the paper-like ones from SD). in the future, i want to move to all metal ones with the 5 layer metal. they really are the best ones. i wanted the dyno engineering ones to help with a leak...but just ended up doubling up on metal ones when the paper-like ones just broke into pieces. no more leak.

    Yup. The OE gaskets are really high quality. better than any of the aftermarket stuff i've seen.

    Thumbs up

    I was using a VERY similar looking gasket on my uppipe that I bought at Carquest for $3.00. The thing worked great all through last summer, surviving many runs down the 1/4 mile. Then it failed in November and disintegrated in my hand when I removed it...in fact, when I saw your pictures of the failed gasket I was asking myself, "hey, how'd he get a hold my blown out gasket?" It's nice to see a vendor taking care of their customers though! Two thumbs up for suby_dude.

    Gruppe-S gaskets are very nice, 5 ply gaskets, made by a company that makes gaskets for subaru. OEM are good but I think those are slightly better
