Hey guys, I got the jba shorty headers and I've ordered the mopar gaskets as well because I know the jba gaskets are garbage, but which aftermarket header bolts do you guys buy? I know the bolts jba gives you aren't good as well so I figured I'd go aftermarket with those too.

Do not know that you can get the 6.1 bolts from an aftermarket vendor. Never saw them. I went with the stage 8 knowing I would never have to go back and tighten them down. Small diff in price considering the PITA it is doing the install. Or having to go back and tighten them down. Just my two cents, or nickel with the way things are now. LOL

Stage 8 for me with the shorties..........now removing them does suck and then trying to install them with long tubes on the car impossible!

I read somewhere on here that there are a total of 17 bolts needed and one metal spacer sheet.

Here you go.

My local dealer was charging $1.85 per bolt which would be okay if I weren't ordering parts from an online site that does free shipping on all the other items I am still purchasing.

So jba didn't provide me with that spacer when I bought my headers?

From what I read on that previous post it should come with it. I haven't even opened the boxes for my parts yet so I cannot assure you. Read the post and compare what you have in your shipment for more clarification.

6.1 header bolts are mkre than plenty and when used with a factory gasket will never loosen.

Just received my titanium coated JBA shorty headers. I can't remember which gasket I'm supposed to order. Is it the 6.1 gasket or is it the 5.7 gasket? I have an '09 R/T.
