    What is a Collector Gasket?

    I was looking at buying a 2003 Subaru WRX. The car has 90,000 miles on it. Told me it needed a new "Collector Gasket" on it, something to do with the turbo I think. But I have no clue. Can someone help out?

    He is probably talking about the passenger exhaust manifold to up-pipe gasket. A "collector" is generally a term used with aftermarket headers where the primaries merge together.
