As long as it doesn't require retorquing. There are a lot of brackets in the way of the header bolts. Some of the header bolts even have attached studs for mounting brackets.

Looks like for a replacement gasket I will need a flat one (without raised sealing rings) with oval ports. Also does anyone know the size of stock 416/601 head exhaust ports?

The best gasket will not seal a bend flange. 2 ports with only 2 bolts is not an easy thing to seal. Check that flange for straightness.
