I got bought some used TRD header (V-6) last year, and it's time to put them on my truck. I need a manifold gasket. I have read some complaints about leaking gaskets. Should I use the stock gasket?

OK, sounds interesting. Do you have some explosives? It is not an easy job at all, but I can certainly supervise and drink beer.

It's going to happen in January. I can fill my garage fridge with beer.

A lot of people forget to retorque their header bolts after the engine has been warmed up, and cooled back down. You may have to retighten them after several engine warm ups/cool downs. The header gaskets expand and contract with the engine temps. That is the #1 cause of header leaks.

if i used a non stock gasket on my header for my 4cyl it would always leak..
