What type of material are they? I have always had very good luck with Copper header gaskets.  No leaks and reusable.  I have reused mine atleast a half dozen times so far.

Everything else on list look ok??

Here is the info on the construction of the remflex gaskets. It is a flexible graphite material. They are really good.

Rest of list looks good.

X2 on remflex gaskets, just a thought on carb studs I like these there stainless and have an allen head in case of removal later.

Never had an issue with the gaskets supplied with the Hookers on a Cleveland. I used, and re-used them, for many years. Trick was Ultra Copper sealant. A smear on both sides of each port, let it set up for 10 mins, install and let cure.

Before you install the headers, pre-clearance the tubes with a header bolt and a socket. Slip the bolt into the flange bolt hole then slide a socket over the bolt. If it's all wonky off on an angle, smack the socket with a hammer to clearance the pipe. You can install about 80% of the bolts with a socket and ratchet, the remainder you'll have to use a wrench. First time I installed a set, my Chevy and Pontiac friend were blown away how easily they went in.

Partial to ARP studs, the bullet nose makes life easier.

You can save the $40 and use the ones that come with the headers. At least mine came with gaskets.

Yeah mine did too. Blew the gasket out after about 1,200 miles. Put on the Remflex and never looked back.

since you have used copper gaskets and had good luck you could certainly try them again. as far as the "compressible" non metal gaskets go, remflex are by far the beast as others have mentioned.

you could also try the aluminum compressible gaskets if you want.
