I would just scrap the thick paper gasket they give you and use a thin metal gasket.

Then I dont know what to tell you. Mine were also short on my QTP cutout, so I just didnt use a gasket, and I never had any leaks. I just put a bead of high temp silicone on the y-pipe before bolting the cutout motor down and it never leaked.

I know the Nuts have a thin crown.. this is suposed to fit into the slot on your DMH cut out and it will grab more threads.... the only problem I could see is that if you wanted to add an extension to the cut out you would need longer bolts. Im not sure about other cut outs... but if you have a DMH, just make sure the smaller ID end of the nut is the actual contact surface of the nut... if that makes any since.

Are they heavy?? just making sure you arent trying to use the flanges they send with the kit? lol, that would be an honest mistake someone could do.

I am wondering if you may have tossed them out in the box it came in. The special nuts are in a small zip lock bag. Everything fit on mine.
