Default Looking for a gasket. Someone help.

I'm looking for a gasket that fits in between the headers and the catylic converter.



So does anyone know?

Have you tried local muffler shops? They should be able to give you one. Or an auto parts store, they carry exhaust gaskets.

I've tried autozone and pepboys. Pepboys doesn't have it and claims to not be available on the market. And at autozone they claim that I don't have performance headers even when I showed them the engine bay so they can't provide me with a gasket...********.

It's a donut gasket. You can get them at your local Honda dealer. The one that was already on your header should work okay until you're able to buy a new one.

yup, looks like a tin foil donut. It will be A LOT more expensive at Honda.

If it goes between a traditional header (DC Sports, Comptech, Greddy, etc...) and the cat, it should be a soft "graphite" donut. I know there are several sources other than Honda for the 2.5" versions, and I'd imagine the 2.0" versions can also be found elsewhere, but the OEM Honda one wasn't terribly expensive when I bought mine.
