Default Blowin out header gaskets ?

So I'm so tired of blow out gaskets on the passenger side flange . Flange is thick and seems to set flush from the naked eye but has to be some what warped or the header bolt holes are not large enough and hitting the sides when tightened down . I've checked length since I've replaced half the bolt with chevy bolts so to falling over time . I've locked tighted everyone since then and re tightened. I don't have flex pipes yet and so the exhaust is pretty stiff including mounts . Anyone else have this kinda issue and figured out a solution that worked .
Ive been using paper and composite type gaskets and even doubling them up . Today I say a set of solid aluminum gaskets . Mr gasket 7401g anyone use them . There $30 so I may just give them a try and see
