They were special order at one time, but they have a stock number now even though it's not listed in their catalog.

The construction is 3 layers of full stainless steel. The outer surfaces are evenly coated with a nitrile coating as opposed to OEM gaskets only having beads run around the key areas and a layer of aluminum or some other soft material.

Buy Crash477's set. He got them from me and now doesn't need them. Help a brotha out!!!! You won't be disappointed.

As for manifold fitment with the thinner gaskets, it's a non-issue. There is more than enough room to fit the intake. If you've portmatched, it may require a little massaging to get the flush finish back. It may make the exhaust manifold a little more tricky to slide over the studs. A little more arm power is all that's needed to gently squeeze the header in while lifting it into place. Although, this allows the header to stay put when the nuts are loosened instead of falling on your head.....
