    Downpipe/Turbo Exhaust Leak

    I was hearing sound coming from the engine compartment that didn't sound quite right. I let the car cool for a long while then took my heat shield off. Started the car then ran around to the passenger side and felt around where the downpipe fits to the turbocharger. I could feel air coming from the drivers side of the DP/TC. Checked all the nuts and bolts to see if everything was snug and indeed it was. Any ideas on whats up? Thanks.

    Did you reuse the gasket or replace it? If replaced, what gasket was used?

    I used the gasket with the invidia turboback I bought. Should I have re-used the stock one? It was in fine shape.

    You don't reuse gaskets.

    The gaskets included are garbage. Buy a new OEM gasket and replace the one you have there.
