copper is the only thing I have seen hold up. I think you can get them from summit and they aren't exactly cheap.

I run copper 3 bolt flange ones on my F150... been on there for over a year now. I used lock-tite and lockwashers on the collectors also. I tried to tighten them slowly and evenly (seemed to work) to help counter any leaks.
