or high temp silicone for the turbo to exhaust manifold marriage?
If you have a good mating surface then gaskets or goo is not needed. I guess having two spare tires in the trunk is good insurance too. :crazy:chrisgarrett46 said:When I put a straight-edge on the manifold it appears to be straight. I tried pulling a piece of paper from under the edge at various points and it was tight. I guess I wonder though, why would you not use the copper gasket? Isn't it a good insurance?
Gotta agree with this. What gain is there to not using one?? Nothing!JDSfastGN said:i would honestly run the gasket, chances are the old stock turbo has slightly warped and the manifold matches it. I just don't see why take a chance when he already has the gasket. I would rather not take a chance and just run the gasket and enjoy no exhaust leaks.
