no matter what i do i cant seem to keep my DP sealed.when i first bought the car there was only one bolt holding it on.took the turbo off,drilled out 2 broken bolts and tapped all the holes,made my own gasket and put locktite on all 4 brand new bolts.month later i have lost one bolt and the rest backed off.and blew my gasket out.how the hell are u supposed to keep this thing sealed?since it is a 3in. DP,all i can get on the flange it those allen head bolts

I made my own gasket out of copper sheet metal, and copper Permatex. And while it still leaks a little at the flange, it is better than it was.

I was thinking of switching to a soft aluminum, it should conform better. dunno
