Header question

I'm in the middle of replacing the header gaskets on my car, gen 3. Kooks will special make me a set of gaskets, but I have a set of new stock gaskets.
What would you guys use, stock or header gaskets?

Also, should I get header lock bolts, or keep the stock bolts?
Considering how much of a pain it was to remove all the bolts, I'm thinking the header lock bolts would be a bigger pain.

You actually have headers with bad gasket or do you have factory manifolds?

The gaskets were in really bad shape.
Kooks don't slip together, they are one piece...total pain in the ass. I'm pretty sure you have to pull the motor to get them out. I jacked the motor to one side and couldn't remove them. I was going to get them Jet coated. But just slipped the gasket in there and tightened everything up.
If I have to replace, I'll go the M&M route.
