'09 exhaust manifold gasket

A MSDS header is on the way, what would be the best manifold gasket, OEM? FelPro? Solid copper?

Thanks,
Richard

Is it a new header? Any headers I've bought have new gaskets with them.

Yes, the new header comes with one, just don't know what kind/material.
Just wondering what was the best available, don't want any leaks in the future since a lot of stuff has to be done just to get at it

I see... makes sense. I used to have copper ones on my Mustang. No problems in the few years I had them!
