    Exhaust manifold gaskets

    I've picked up a set of (3) exhaust manifold gaskets yesterday. 2 have a metal/alloy coating on 1 side, the other doesn't. I presume the last one is for the heat shield to head.
    Also, what side of the gasket to what? Metal/alloy side to manifold or head?

    Well, I'm not positive on this but I would put the metal side to the heads. Seems logical to me as that is where the heat is generated. You might call the gasket manufacture tech line to make sure.
