Yes those are the gaskets, and they are not reusable. If you are going to use gask.ets you need new ones. It all had to come off anyways, unless you like exhaust leaks from hell. I would listen to Brad he knows his shit.

I might even redo mine with gaskets and bend the fan brackets as he suggested. Because I do have a small leak on the #3 header

If you run without gaskets you will need to seat them with a rubber mallet. What screws are stripped?

2 screws in the velocity stacks.....they are totally stripped


damn now i cant decide, gaskets? no gaskets? cuz if thats the case ill just leave these stock ones in.....but if yoshi says its okay, im thinking its ok.....but im thinking they are thinking from saying from a race perspective where engine rebuilds are common....from a street perspective would gaskets be better?

Probably best to spend the $ on new gaskets, you already dropped all that $ on exhaust...and do you really want to take it off again because you used old gaskets? I've been running no gaskets for 2yrs just so you know, like I said though it does have small exhaust leak...

decisions decisions.....i really prefer to not bend the rad fan. but then again i dont want leaks so leaving gaskets would be fine. but if yoshi says its supposed to be without gaskets i dont want it installed "improperly".....how can u tell u have a leak on cylinder 3?

OK I will

Here's the question.
Do you really want to pull it all apart again when you end up with an exhaust leak?
If your answer is no, then get some new gaskets and be done with it.

but heres the thing if the yoshi is designed to be used without the gaskets is it not detrimental to have the gaskets causing the headers to not seat properly?

A gasket ensures a seal between two mating surfaces nothing more nothing less.
Your other exhaust seated just fine with the gaskets in place why would this be any different?
