Dunno about the two gaskets (someone else can answer that), but some copper seal-a-gasket (form-a-gasket?) might help, and also making sure you use the right torque specs.

Not two gaskets.

Alrighty then. 26ft-lbs. Torque the elbow thingy to the engine block (3 bolts). Torque the pipes that elbow thingy connects to (4 bolts). Torque the 3 bolts on the turbo that do not go through brackets. Torque the 2 that do. That should do it.

If you've developed a leak, you cannot reuse the gaskets. I mean.. like... if you put it back together and it leaks right away, sure, you probably can, but if it's been leaking for a while or the leak develops after a time (like mine), the uppipe gaskets are gone. In fact, one of mine was cracked... which I think was the source of the leak.

its leaking from the flange where the crosspipe and uppipe meet. I think it may be because i had the uppipe on the floor and i was beating it with a screwdriver and it left some dings on the flange. Its a new gaskett so i don't know what to do. do you think i should use like a liquid gasket or something? thanks. I have today off and tomorrow im out of work by 230 if anyone would be great enough to help. thanks
