I might not be clear, so I apologize.

The gasket is fine, I'm using a stock one, the visible problem is with the
washers between the locking nuts and the header itself. The stock ones have a
rubber seal at the nut end with that little round coil. After I installed the
first part (the header is a 5-3-1) it didn't look good.

And, yes it is a rare example of a 10V NA header, that I stealed for $160 at
Ebay 2 years ago!!!

I'm about to finish the Frankenstein. The last piece missing is a baffle that
is already on its way, not couting this washer problem. Then I'll show you before
and after pics.

build for a 10v motor then any of the gaskets should work. Also, there are two
size gaskets, laster gaskets for the crossflow VW's are much bigger, that 's
what I used, but I built the head and header around those gaskets, maybe
you've gotten a set of those by accident?
