Alright, made a lot of progress.

Napa, autozone, advanceauto are all a waste of time for this. Those guys are like "uhhhh well what uhhh at least tell me what year it is" and im like DUDE the stocker is AN O-GASKET I want a COLLECTOR 3-BOLT gasket. Sometimes I lose faith in society's ability to think for itself.

ANYWAY the napa guy gave me some headway. He said look for "nitro-seal" sheets. ebay, no. amazon, no. froogle, no. BUT I did find some AWESOME Mr. Gasket stuff on Amazon. the p/n 5961 (6"x24", $13.50) or uhhh.. 5960 for a 10x10 @ $8.50. I figure with the 10x10 you get 9 gaskets, the 6x24 will allow 16 at most. I'm gonna get the 6x24 tonight and see what happens. I mean geez, this stuff is .063" thick! theres no way its gonna blow out. Oh, and amazon has the cheapest price ive seen i think, but this one place on froogle has a free shipping deal. $12.98 total, not bad for 16 exhaust gaskets! Besides, I need new ones for both flex flanges, too!

P.S. the temp gasket/rtv blew out after 200 miles. leaking pretty bad now after 350. I wouldn't recommend wasting 10 bucks on it, unless you really NEED to drive your car (like i did).
