Did a search already so no flaming, too many inconclusive hits.

Anyways, is the Ford Dealer the best place to buy a header gasket? I need 2 of them... I am parting out my 2000 ZX3 and am sending back my JBA header to get a new replacement under warranty, so I need to put the stock one back in and sell the new JBA when it comes in.

I noticed that AutoZone, Pep and other auto parts dealers have to special order it... and I noticed that the gasket that came with the JBA seemed a little bit beefier than the stock one. Not sure if if there is anything to be concerned about, I guess I would much rather put a beefier Fel-Pro (or who ever makes them) version in Vs. stock.

The gasket that JBA uses is prone to breakage. I would go with the factory gasket, it's very good. You can get it from the dealer.
Excellent that is exactly what I needed to know. Does anyone know the part number and the price on a new gasket????
