it might be louder (due to leaking gaskets ) but mine is hotter!

use your best judgement, some gaskets that come with headers are crap, if your stock ones are in good enough condition, use those.If you can afford a set of good locking header bolts, get em. Take the worry out of having leaks later on from bolts lossening themselves.Or just use loctite on old ones if they are in good condition (not rounded)

Reused my stock header gaskets on my 98....twice. Once with the longtubes and once for the turbo manifolds. As long as they aren't ripped/cracked/etc, I'd reuse them.

In my experience, buy new bolts. If yours are the original ones they are 10mm you will most likely damage the ones towards the firewall trying to get them off. New ones have a 13mm head and are a little tougher. You do not want to break a bolt off in that head.

I ended up using new locking header bolts, Headers went on about a month ago
