I am installing an ECCPP header on my 2002 with the 3.3 liter engine and was told that I needed to use a copper gasket. So far I have not been able to find a copper gasket. Any help in locating one or an alternative would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Who told you that you needed a copper gasket? The header manufacturer? If not...ask the header manufacturer.

I'm using NEW OEM Nissan MLS styles on mine. NO leaks yet, after almost 5,000 miles, although the pipe to muffler gasket is out already... (single layer "soft metal/not metal" crap)

Thanks for the input everyone. I plan on using either a multilayer stainless steel gasket or the gasket that came with the headers.
