good luck finding gaskets at a local parts store.

dont use gasket sealer, get new gaskets.

Mike Trendel can get you good prices

i wish my girlfriend gave me car parts....


i used gasket sealer on mine b/c the back of the pipe is really hard to get torqued down properly if you dont have a lift =\. mine was very very rusty so get out ur wd40a and good luck.

btw, this can be done with jack stands, you dont need a lift for this project. i even got a sawzaw on the bolts that are at the cat/flex as well as the header/cat connection. all them bolts were rusted up. that was a PITA! all done with no lift. just a few blades

reminder to all, use antiseize on all bolts particular exhaust bolts. i also replaced all the bolts with Grade 8 bolts from Lowes. makes the install sooooo much easier

i had to take mine to a muffler shop as well to get the old bolts off, dont recall what he charged me because i had some other stuff done at the same time. He had to heat them up pretty good though to get them off and i think he had warped my flange on the flex pipe, but i just kept driving it and re-tightening it every couple hundred miles or so and now it has a nice tight seal and no leak whatsoever.
