Howdy folks,

     Tonight I decided to track down the exhaust leaks I've been hearing since I put that used set of headers on my car last week.  It turns out they are leaking badly where they meet the heads on nearly every port.  I cleaned up the gasket surface on the headers pretty decently with a wire brush in a drill and used brand new graphite 140 seals (they are 140 heads).  

     I took a photo in case anyone needs to know what type they are in order to give advice on how to get them to seal properly.
