Yep, it could be the issue. If you use paper header gaskets soak them in water 24 hours before you use them. This makes them swell and hold moisture. But the best tip is use stock replacement small block chevy exhaust manifold gaskets, these are made of meshed steel and don`t burn out easy. They are also slotted so you can just drop them in without removing the header bolts. After you get your header gaskets fixed and if the problem persists it`s likely in the tune. Get back with us once you have the headers back in order.
