Default Turbulator Gasket - no risers - Do i need gaskets

My 496 MAG base model doesnt have the 2 inch risers because four winns decided to remove them in order for the engine room door to close. Apart from the trubulator (#8M2000433) will I need any pair of gaskets (#27-862356) to be used between the manifolds and the elbows.
I mean the correct is A or B:
A .... Maniford - Gasket -Turbulator - Gasket - Elbow
B .... Maniford - Turbulator - Elbow

Also do trubulators need replacement or are reusable part?

You need two gaskets per side, one between manifold and turbulator and one between turbulator and elbow, so A is correct. You can reuse the turbulators as long as they aren't chewed up at all (they usually are), but I would just replace them as by the time you scrape off all the old gasket material, you waste a lot of time and they are not that expensive.
