how do you pick header gaskets for SBC

Looking at the E-tec head it has standard size exhaust ports. Edelbrock recommends 1.500 x 1.500 square port gaskets. They are composite with steel core.

They're virtually blowout and burnout-proof and totally reusable. Percy's Seal-4-Good Header Gaskets 66012 - SummitRacing.com Check your headers to make sure the exhaust ports line up.
