Agreed OEM gaskets are the best for this. Proven fact.

hahaha I know. The more I thought about it - I figured the OEM gaskets had to be right bc the headers are made to direct bolt...
I made this thread to help others! :D

ok, so i'm gonna bump this lol.

Did you guys use OEM Maxima gaskets or OEM SE-R Gaskets (since the hotshots are made for the SE-R). I blew a gasket on mine, bottomed out and unseated the rear manifold gasket. I bought OEM maxima gaskets, they didn't fit properly, so I still have a leak. Its definitely the gasket and not a crack or anything, so I was about to order OEM SE-R gaskets, not sure if they are a little different.
