The manual states new gaskets all around when removing header and exhaust. Do you think the gaskets will be bad on a 2006 which has very low hours? I do not mind buying the gaskets, just need to know if I should have them on hand before I start, or if there is a good chance the originals are still good and usable? Please give me adivce if you can. Thanks...:ride:

I have reused exhaust gaskets many times with no ill effects. Clean them up, inspect for gouges, etc., reuse them if they look OK.
