Hopefully my manifold will come in before the weekend and im gonna go to the local cummins shop to get exhaust gaskets. I have heard that it is good to double up the gaskets is there any truth to this ? should i get twelve gaskets .

if your engine block is warped i can see it having more medal to make it flush when it molds, otherwise i see more of a possibility of leaking exhaust

well i got the gaskets and the guy at the shop also said some folks are using two . so i went ahead and bought 12 . With a new ATS i would think it would be true and the block should be true . i might just go with one gasket per port .

Are they the MLS gaskets? Check the block with a straight edge.

In my experience two gaskets usually leak, period.

like dual said, and i referred too, if its off slightly which is a 50/50 you have a much better chance to leak.
