Default Borla header ? Gasket problem

just a quick one, i just bought the borla header... with the 3 flanger gaskets. I just put the header on, now i have to take the car back to the dealer. So back to stock again. The brola header has been on the for 3 days now, maybe 250miles? somewhere around there.... Can i reuse these gaskets?


If so... where is the cheapest place to buy these gaskets?
on the net? ( any web pages? )
or local stores? Names?

250 miles? No, you should not have a problem with re-using them.

I re-used a set that had 10k on them and still had no leaks. I believe that one re-use depending on mileage is OK. But a second re-use is a no go.

Question

Your dealer will give you problems if you have a header installed?

Have any better dealers close by?

Thats also what i was going to ask. Most dealers won't have a problem with a header. But if you want to take it off to be safe go for it. *shrug*

Actaully I came across a bit of info once that said SEMA had it out in court with dealers (or someone) and it is now illegal for them to deny warrenty work because of exhaust mods. Especially if the parts are CARB approved, which IIR Borlas are.

You shouldn't have to change it out.
