Default 04 wrx up pipe gasket

Is an aftermarket catless up pipe gasket the same as the stock gasket?

Thanks

You might need pictures considering some aftermarket companies use different flanges so you "have" to continue your piping project with them or get a new flange welded.

Unless you mean "aftermarket" as in a better grade gasket then you should be fine.

The grimmspeed aftermarket gasket is the same as the OEM but much thicker. You just need to compare them

The head gasket set that I got had multiple shape gaskets for the exhaust but they were all too small.

Aftermarket parts are 99% never the same as OEM. OEM is OEM, everything else is whatever.

Are you looking for a uppipe-turbo gasket or a manifold-uppipe gasket? The first is the same for all stock location turbos. The second is the same as stock as long as you dont have a header/uppipe combo that uses a 3-bolt flange.
