exhaust gaskets

My engine is currently out of the car and will go back in shortly. The extractors had a gasket and plenty of the gray gasket goo all over everything and still looked like it was leaking.

What is the best way to seal the extractors?
gasket only?
gasket and goo? (what type of goo?)

Make sure your Header face is straight first? Fords are usually good, not like the siamese port on the centre of small chevys which often distorts.
If every things straight you should'nt need any thing, but a gasket. If its looking old ,use some good high temp sealer and gasket

Use high temp silicone-the orange one with copper.We have used just the high temp silicone with no gasket for years with zero probs.Cheers.
