    Hey guys, i was originally told OEM Ford gaskets were preferred over Kooks for use with their LT's. I believe this came from AED but i cant recall now. Does TMO have a similar preference? Wheres the best place to order for Ford OEM?

    I did the same with my Kooks shorties. The OEM gaskets are just better looking than the ones that came with the headers.

    FORD OEM!

    The ones supplied with the Kooks headers blew apart on me creating a massive exhaust leak...20hp loss btw. Replaced with Ford OEM and all is well.

    I just ordered the Coyote exhaust manifold gasket and hardware kit from Don Wood Ford. Has some other hardware that I figured I might need now or in the future. Part # was M-9448-M50
