Need to replace header gaskets when grinding the welds?

11 posts in this topic

Or are the stock ones still good after taking the headers off and reinstalling?

OK thanks. I didn't want to take things apart and then need to order gaskets to get back on the road.

PS Did you notice any difference by grinding the welds, ie is it worthwhile?

We're talking about grinding some of the excess weld material inside the header pipes.

i think it is better, but not much if at all. it should be better cause it opened up those holes a little more.
