    invidia up pipe and grimm speed gaskets

    Hi Folks. Anyone know exactly which grimm speed gaskets are needed for an up pipe replace? And are the permaseal gaskets just as good? Thanks for any help!

    I don't have any experience with an 02, but check this out Uppipe, Downpipe, Muffler INSTALL GUIDE!

    Yea you need the one that goes from manifold to UP (2 bolt) and the one that goes from UP to turbo (4 bolt). I wouldnt use permaseal. I recommend using OEM gaskets.

    Any broken exhaust seal will require a new gasket. It depends on your install method, but the following three are always needed:
    1) Downpipe/turbo
    2) Uppipe/turbo
    3) Uppipe/manifold

    If you pull the turbo, just those three are needed. If you drop the exhaust manifold, you'll need further gaskets. If you just remove the passenger manifold elbow, you'd need a manifold/crosspipe gasket. If you drop the entire manifold, you'll need two manifold/head gaskets. If your downpipe uses a donut gasket (e.g., stock), you may be able to reuse that as it doesn't have a lip like a flat gasket. If your downpipe/catback uses a 3" flat gasket, that will need to be replaced as well.

    I always use OE gaskets, when available. In the case that they're not available (e.g., 3" flat flange gaskets on the catback/downpipe), I use Grimmspeed.
