WOW...that's a great tip!!! Also, I'm not sure what kind of gaskets (especially the exhaust port gaskets) come with the B&B install kit. If they aren't the nice looking factory metal ones with an asbestos like material in the middle (like a sandwhich), don't waste your time...buy the proper ones. I can't remember who it was, but one of these manufacturers was supplying their headers with these horrible home made gaskets!!! I'm also not sure what type of hardware comes with the install kit...use new stuff. The nuts I used were a copper looking material.
