4.2 Intake / Exhaust gasket ?

I've searched around in here and found certain people saying that you should use both gaskets that come with the kit, and others say to only use one.

What is the consensus?

I would use both. I did. that's how it should be done. if not it leaves a small gap.

I just used the one gasket when i replaced it a couple months ago and I have no leaks. You can google it and find several threads on the subject.

that is strange. i to have heard of people useing the one gasket. ive always seen the two gaskets when looking at other 4.2's. with my intake off i could see that the manifold & intake where offset just a little to each other. but obviously it can work. so good luck and flip a coin i guess. lol.

This is exactly what I keep running into. I'm looking for a consensus of people who have done this in the past and been happy with the result.

To double gasket or not, that is the question.

I've replaced those gaskets three times since I've owned mine and all three times both gaskets were stapled together.
