Either the orange RB gaskets or the blue Novarossi's. I have found to be able and reuse them several times.

What I'm learning about the gaskets is that you need to make sure they are alligned and there there's no strange angles.

RB and Novas are really good, but they are expensive. I've found that the AE gaskets aren't the best, but you will still come out ahead with the AE 5 pack. They are so cheap you can afford to keep em fresh.

I run Racer's Edge gaskets w/o issue. If you're exhaust isn't aligned properly you might be going through gaskets faster. Otherwise they should last a hella long time.

I have had issues with racers edge gaskets. I use RB or GRP (too bad no more GRP) but the RB stuff seals good.

I bet that there is one or two manufacturers making all of them, no matter how they're branded and packaged.

I've tried OS, Dynamite, RB, GS and Novarossi gaskets, and I came to the same conclusion.
