I'd buy them seperate. they usually come with those shitty paper gaskets, and not the good metal ones. the paper ones blow out, and leak, even on a stock motor.

I have A Gene Berg built engine and don't want to kill it buy changing the exhaust and not letting it breath properly. The issue that I have an exhaust that to loud for the car and me. If anyone has a suggestion I am open to them.

What exhaust do you have now? A1 makes nice systems and if you have a Berg engine spending on a A1 would be inline. Here is a link to a vender with the set up. You will need the header and muffler.
Header

Muffler

J pipes if you are not running heater boxes

These are not cheap items BUT you do get what you pay for. Don't get a header with pipes that are too big, muffler either for that matter, most people want the biggest of everything and that is not the best way to pick a exhaust.

As Bugman said it will probably come with gaskets but beware what muffler you get, if it says EMPI it won't be much of a muffler. I have seen those last less than a year before there was a 2 inch rust hole(in the South not due to salt). The fitment is poor as well.

I like those black squishy gaskets cb performance sells. I believe they are either graphite or carbon, or something like that, I forget which. I used them on the last couple of motors I built. No leaks, even on old warped exhaust flanges o.O

I just wish I remembered to buy them for this motor I'm building for my rail TT~TT

If you can find aluminum use them first. If not get copper.

Vintagespeed.

I have one of Mr. lee's exhausts on my bus. All stainless, quiet, but it is a little pricey. Well worth the $ tho...

Do you mean the solid or crush type? Which ones do you use? I tried some cb solid copper gaskets before and all they did was leak, tho my flanges prolly weren't 100% flat. Might have worked better on a new exhaust with perfect flanges, idk. I also couldn't get the exhaust nuts to stop loosening up and falling off even with lock washers. I eventually put some lock nuts and that worked, but it still leaked.

I was in a tight once, didn't have a gasket for an old tractor. I did have some leftover aluminum/vinyl flashing from the home repair.

Two gaskets, pvc to pvc and it hasn't blown in over 10 years!
