Default Aluminum vs copper collector gaskets.

"No more leaky collector gaskets.
Tired of your exhaust collector being leaky and making your exhaust louder than normal? Try a pair of these Mr. Gasket aluminum collector gaskets to get rid of the problem. They are manufactured from dead soft aluminum to easily conform to surface irregularities while providing a tight, leakproof seal. Mr. Gasket aluminum collector gaskets will not shrink, deteriorate, blow out, or burn out. Ideal for race, street, towing, or motor homes, these Mr. Gasket aluminum collector gaskets will make leaky collector gaskets a thing of the past. "

But they will deform so much they will eventually leak.

My copper gasket on the other side looks just like new.

Those aluminum ones = teh suck. I had 2 sets blow out on my truck and 1 set on my bros truck. I replaced them with the paper ones and haven't had a problem.
