Default What kind of headers?

I have a 2001 dodge ram 1500 5.9 V8. I'm looking for headers that aren't very expensive but still hold up good. Also, does anyone know what gaskets would be good because I've heard the ones they give you suck and crack and everything, thanks!

The best gaskets are Mopar. Very happy with the JBA's on my hemi. Don't know what's available for the 360, but I'd try to find ones made in the USA. Have you ever bought anything from China that was not crap, ok maybe electronics. hehe

I've been looking at getting some headers for my rig, I've been told they get real hot though, I mean like glowing red hot and can start a fire.

I put pacesetter shorty headers on my truck. Fitting them to the stock exhaust was a PITA. Once I got them on correctly I havent really had any problems. Use penetrating oil on the header bolts a couple times a week (I like PB-Blaster). Those bolts can get seized and rusty

There is nothing better than PB Blaster when it comes to exhaust bolts.
