When installing a header, shorty or full length, can you re-use the stock exhaust manifold bolts with the header, or would you be best served to buy new hardware for the header.

Second question, when installing a flexpipe with a header, can you re-use that hardware?

I'm just trying to plan ahead for the fall when I do some work on my car.

I would aruge different... reuse the head gasket, new flange gaskets, and new hardware all around.

The heat and stress these parts take are immense. You don't wanna take chances.

Thanks for the input, now, where can I find the necessary hardware? I'm most likely buying the header/flex combo from a fellow Jetter. Does someplace like FocusSport or FocusCentral sell just the hardware I would need? Or, could I just buy new bolts and gaskets from a Ford dealer?
