    Now that i found my problem, i got a gasket, but now i need to get some new plug wires, which should i get? Should i go for the spendy accel? and also should i use any gasket sealer on the collector and exhaust manifold gaskets?

    I never use anything on exhaust gaskets, but Copper RTV is what you would use if you think its necessary. IMO, a higher quality gasket will help tho, check Summit Racing for some of their stuff.

    I run Champion Truck Wires right now....ceramic protector around the boot, high temp, 8mm, but they were about $80 or so for the set. Not one wire problem tho in 5 years of abuse with the headers... Bought mine at Napa, probably available elsewhere.
