    New wrx, quick question

    I'm looking to purchase a 05-07 wrx here in the next few months, completely stock. I'm definitely looking to go stage 2 with it and know exactly what i want for the upgrade. I'll be purchasing a cobb catted downpipe, a blitz nur r catback and an accessport...(up pipe as well if 2005) But my question is what gaskets will i need to purchase in order for everything to fit perfectly and correct? Any help is appreciated, thanks again

    For just a turboback exhaust, you'll need a turbo/downpipe gasket, and possibly a new donut gasket (downpipe/catback).

    For an uppipe, you'd need an additional turbo/uppipe, uppipe/manifold gasket. Depending on your install method, you'd need additional manifold/head and manifold/crosspipe gaskets, as well.

    Just to add to it..You may find that gaskets are provided with your pipes. I would go ahead and order the OEM gaskets for use; often the provided gaskets are of low quality.

    I would just get them and replace them with the install. My theory is, it can't do nothing but help. You would "shoot" yourself in the foot if you needed a gasket xxxx miles when you could've just did it with the install at first.

    When I did my stage 2 I just replaced all the gaskets being taken off with turboxs ones from rallysportdirect. It's hard to find an uppipe and downpipe that will come with all the gaskets
