when you purchase like say kooks headers, what does it bring, does it bring bolts and gaskets too?

I am considering purchasing used headers instead and wanted to know what I need for complete install,

how much would gaskets for it be?

thanx in advance ! luis

You can reuse your stock manifold gaskets, I did when I put the TPiS's on. No leaks.

But yes all that comes in the new box, gaskets, bolts. The TPiS even come with a piece to help with the install into factory cats, if that's what you want to do. I went with Random Tech's though so it went in the trash.

Actually mine didn't come with gaskets or bolts. I had to reuse all of the originals. I bought a set of gaskets, but the place that did the installation forgot to use them. I believe they were about $14 each at the dealership.
