Hey guys Im installing my doug thorley headers on my 06 4 cylinder and was wondering where do I go to find the gaskets for the headers and the other flange. Devilrunner said I could just reuse the gaskets since they're really well made, but I want to at least try to look for some.

Idk. I want to try and find them tomorrow. Edwin says there good enough to reuse, but i rather play it safe and not get an exhaust leak. Idk if a napa store would have them or something. The guy at autozone looked at me like i was stupid and said he might be able to order them.

Im just trying to figure out if its ok to reuse them. Every search on the internet i get says you shouldnt reuse them and so does my friend. But edwin says him and his exhaust guy said this that you can just reuse the stock nissan gaskets cause they're so good. Then i also did a search and found some doug thorley related things that said reusing oem gaskets is better. IDK!!!!:comphead:

i guess ill have to do that. i just wanted to see if anyone was like " NO never ever reuse gaskets." Cause thats what i thought. Im afraid of blowing something up or something like that.

just a thought. why dont you go buy a new set of oem type gaskets? its not like they have special ones just because of the headers.

most places dont have stuff like that for our trucks yet. When i was getting my brake lines made, not even the dealer carried them.
an auto store doesnt even carry 2nd gen exhaust gaskets? i find that hard to believe

cause nissan hasnt sold the rights to felpro to produce there version....you would be surprised how many parts dont exist aftermarket wise for alot of vehicles cause special material or its complexity or the manufacturer trying to keep the rights for themselves for as long as they can....

well guys i installed my custom cai for my 2.5 today and it is sick. I didnt get to the headers, but Im going to install them tomorrow. BUT, i did go to an open dealer today and picked up a new head gasket for $18. Oh well on the price, I feel better using a new gasket. Thanks for your guys help.
