I used the standard metal gaskets with the cannons Mike built for me. As he builds the exhausts on a dummy engine the flanges are perfectly aligned and fit like a dream  :)

Don't forget depending on the system you may need gaskets for some pipe joints as well as the head to pipe ones. Buy plenty, they are cheap enough.
