  • Best riser gaskets?

    I need to be ordering new riser gaskets for my 5.7 GXI soon. I have Barr manifolds and VP risers. Who makes the best gaskets for this combination?, VP, Barr, Sierra, other ?

      When I installed my Barr exhaust I used the Barr gaskets for the exhaust elbows and used some Permatex Aviation sealer on them as per the advice from the Barr tech that I emailed. No problems with leaks so far.
