Funny, I never did have a problem with fiberglass. In high school I used to work weekends and summers roofing and I can remember working around plenty of blown-in (read: loose, not batted) fiberglass in people's attics and I'd be wearing shorts and short sleeve t-shirts. Then again later when laying fiberglass when working on boats, never an issue. It all depends on your tolerance for the stuff. Me? Meh..... I could pretty much wipe my ass with the stuff then go about my business.

The flex from fwerk's is the same length w/ either trans. Unlike obx that has 2 different length's of flex.

Not quite sure I heard it from who but I heard that if you use the stock gaskets it's better. And no I don't think they sell them separate.

Use the Stock Head gasket. Then for the flex to header and flex to exhaust you need to order the gaskets from fswerks... I just had to order one last week because my other one was leaking. I ordered an extra one. Noone like autozone advance autoparts or anywhere else I have checked locally can get the correct gasket.
