How to fix Pacesetter headers cheap gaskets

This is a how to for those who have or are gonna buy pacesetter headers. When you buy them they provide you with cheap paper gaskets that will last about less than 100 miles. Eventually you will start to hear exhaust leaks and your grand am will sound like a gokart. So I found a solution to our problem.

First you use your old gaskets. The metal ones.



Cut them with a dremel intill you get to such.
