I don't know for certain on your model but the 4th Gen guys are using the OEM gaskets.

I've got a 2001 5.2 and I am about to order a pair of long tube headers. I was curious how you finished off your exhaust system or if you just ran straight pipes. How was the performance after the install. Thanks for your advice.

I ran true duals 3 inch pipe all the way back to to 2 flowmaster 10 series in front of rear axle. Its very loud.
Performance wise I didnt think would be able to tell a differnece with 8 inchs of lift but they actually perform well.
