Default how many times can i reuse the stock 1.6 exhaust manifold gasket?

original 93 exhaust manifold gasket, been holding fine since i installed my greddy kit 7 years ago and hasn't seen daylight since. Well the manifold finally has to come off since i got bored and decided to turn the boost up to 20psi for an afternoon, didn't last long till one of the bolts sheared off, held forever at 15psi though. So can i reuse this thing again or should i look at replacing it at 48K total miles? does anyone make a nice thick copper gasket like i used on my nissan?

I'd reuse it. you're supposed to wait until nov 14th on the dyno before you do silly things like that.
