Default Copper Gasket Maker for the Hard-to-Find Single Port Gaskets.

So I'm curious if when using copper gasket maker, you should keep the old gaskets on there and put the copper gasket maker on both sides of the gasket or if you should totally discard the gasket and just use the copper gasket maker. Any insight?

I have no insight because for me, the OE gaskets are readily available at my local Subaru dealer.

It takes me about 35 minutes to get there but it's a nice drive and I get to stare at all the new Subies.

i cant even think of where the nearest subaru dealer would be in relation to me. i think it may be about 50 miles away in findlay, oh. think i could just call the dealership for the gasket?

edit: holy crap! i just found a website selling them! http://www.subaruwrxparts.com/gc8-drivetrain.html

That's a good price but a bit high on shipping.

The shipping, however, is the same for 4 gaskets as it is for 2 so if it were me, I'd order 4 gaskets.

yeah, i saw the shipping and thought "WTF!?", but then i changed the amount to order and realized it stayed the same, so im ok with it and went ahead and placed my order.
...why would i order 4 gaskets? i only need 2. lol

Yeah, just use the old gasket and put the gasketmaker on either side. You don't need a whole lot.

Some people have gotten away with reusing the old gaskets.

I got new Subaru gaskets and still had an exhaust leak...figures.

my problem is that the damn headers make so much of a racket with their hissing and making the valvetrain so much louder. i cant find any cracks, so i guess its either leaking at the flanges or its just because the damn headers are so paper thin.
