Copper RTV, the Remflex gaskets work great also. Get with Chris @ PAS he can set you up.

I went with the Remflex gaskets w/locking header bolts. They lasted one heat cycle (never even drove it) and now I have a blown gasket on the passenger side. I will be keeping an eye on this thread myself.

I had my headers milled flat and then put them on with Ultra Copper RTV. My buddy did the same with his. No problems with either.

you're gonna spend $160 on some magic potion plus have your headers milled, when you can simply get some arp header studs and good gaskets or copper rtv and be done with it for fraction of the cost... why not just have them tig welded

This is true but at least on my on3 kit for my 94 cobra they wouldn't fit. I remember reading where someone else tried studs as well on their turbo headers without luck. I'm sure I could of gotten them to work hollowing out the holes and beating the sides of the pipes in but I didn't want to mangle mine.

Just something to consider

I use set screws from Fastenal as my studs. The allen head makes them a breeze to install or remove. $160 on some extra strength rtv...U must be loaded. Rtv works just fine for me.
