Bought three pair of headers in my life. Only the Thorleys were flat enough to seal. Two pair had to go to a machine shop to be flattened. Only found one local machine shop that would/could do the job. They used a large belt sander holding the headers by hand. It didn't look very precise but it got the job done.

Had a tour of an engine rebuilding shop many years ago that had a 12-14" disc sander mounted horizontally in a flat table to flatten exhaust manifolds. That looked like the right tool.

I run Hooker Super Comps and the gaskets they provided. 6 years later they are still sealed. Cheap headers cause leaks.
