OEM header gasket with Vibrant header?

I looked it up and they look the same. But the thing I'm concerned about is that on the top middle of the header where bolt #2 and #3 is solid and the gasket is just 4 triangles. I cant explain but I'll find pics.

Not a Vibrant header but it looks the same


And this is the gasket

I wont have any leaks right?

Re: OEM header gasket with Vibrant header?

Vibrant doesn't sell the gasket itself? If it matches up then I don't see why not.

Re: OEM header gasket with Vibrant header?

Well when I emailed them back when I was looking for the header they told me they don't make them anymore. So I bought one off of someone on this forum. I'm guessing they wont be making the gasket for it either. And my header came without a gasket.

It seems like parts for our cars are becoming harder and harder to find :(

Re: OEM header gasket with Vibrant header?

Heck yea it is. Went through 2 companies to find my skunk2 exhaust until I finally gave up and actually waited cause it was back ordered. The company I settled for said skunk2 doesn't make them until someone orders it.

think about it: how could the header fit the head if stock gasket wouldnt fit
