Go to repco or bursons and ask for a high flow exhaust manifold gasket. Make sure they dont give you a standard one.

Go to your friendly after market store eg: Bursons, Supercheap, Autobahn etc. Buy a proper extractor gasket and use it.

I am pretty certain that they don't use a gasket. They bolt straight on as long as it's a good clean surface. I still think they use a little gasket glue though.

I use the genuine Ford stainless steel exhaust manifold gasket. Have done for years, and no leaks.

Gasket is required for best seal...I am certain extractors are not perfectly straight, so there won't be a good seal...if any, unless you tighten the bolts so much that the extractors start to dig into the head...which I think would be a stupid idea. Bolt thread would strip the head before then anyway.

Just get a gasket from your local auto shop

Or you start screwing into waterjackets in the head... (maybe not on the inline sixes, but some cars with soft alloy heads you can screw them too tight and burst a waterjacket..)
