Well installed my bbk shorties today with new ram gaskets from the dealer. Took a lot longer than I figured. When I did my start up I could smell some burning. Do the gaskets burn off when new? Only ran her for about ten minutes hadn't had a chance to go on a test drive yet. Thanks

Ok no more smell. I think I'm just hearing the normal tick now. Crawled under it and see no smoke at all. Maybe I'm just losing my mind.

Stupid me I had to take my daughter to school this morning in my wife's 2011 citadel. Dah I have another hemi to compare the sound to. My trucks tick sounds exactly the same only a bit louder. I have heard sometimes headers magnify it a bit
