gaskets REQUIRED for jmod?

I've re-used valve body gaskets, but when they've been cooked in there for a long time they get brittle and you don't get them out in one piece.

The downside to new gaskets is the 8+ hour and 2-week re-torque you should do as they compress.

buy new gaskets, and use a torque wrench on the valve body bolts. They are not reusable as far as i'm concerned. They get brittle and rip easially if you try to reuse them.

i highly recommend using the proper sequence and going over the bolts 3 times. check my article in WIP for the picture if you need it. Doing it this way i've never had to retorque my VB bolts and never had any problems.
