copper or not

Hi guys,


A friend of mine has a 440 with mods. His concern is the header gaskets. He was wondering about the advantages of copper or if there is a better type out there?


Thank you for your time...

I use the factory style gaskets w/o any problems. I think a lot of the problems people have are caused by warped flanges.
