    Default Gen 5 LT1 header gaskets

    I had to take off the headers for the trial fits of the engine. Are these oem steel gaskets reusable? They still look perfect and the motor hasn't been run yet. Thanks

    If they are steel haskets, I wouls believe that they are reuseable.

    U can always call the gm dealer amd find out.

    Most of those steel gaskets will compress to form a seal, I wouldnt be scared to reuse them though as i have done it several times and never had a leak.

    Thanks, My Ford Cobra gaskets were steel and reusable is why I asked. I'll give it a go.
