Just installed DC Sports Header and Strut Bar

I just recieved my DC Sports 4 into 1 header and DC Sports Strut Bar from Options Auto Salon. The strut bar installation was a breeze. Installing the header was easy also. The only exception was removing the stock header because those nuts are on there pretty tight. Also, you have to jack your car up to get to the 2 spring bolts underneath. There was a burning smell when I first started the car but that went away in a few minutes. I felt a difference in torque from around 3800 rpm to redline. Oh yeah, I also have an AEM CAI. No exhaust, yet. I plan on getting the TCS as soon as I get some money. Turning also improved. I can take turns faster than before. Can't wait to get the TCS!

Did you have to replace the gasket when you installed the header? Is it included with the header?
