I am getting some cams and I need a new head gasket. What would be the best kind to get?
I have heard of copper gaskets. Would I be dumb to get one of these. I only have intake, header, cat back. How much does a gasket cost?
any help would be great.

You dont need a head gasket to change your cams. You will only be taking your valve cover off. The stock one will work. You will also need the spark plug gaskets.

You won't even need any gaskets to tell you the truth, they are all rubber. I've taken off my valve cover to do stuff and I replaced it the second i got the car. Unless you haven't replaced it, Don't worry bout gaskets

it has always been said thats a good idea to replace any gasket, any time you take anythign apart. if i were him, i would replace the VC gasket whle hes in there, cuz you never know. you could develop a leak the day afetr you torque the VC down, then its jus ta pain to do it again.
