Default Turbo to downpipe gasket reusable?

I bought a CNT divorced wastegate catted downpipe they were on sale for $310.00. I have the 3" to 2.5" reducer which some say you don't need. I know most gaskets can be reused at least once. Am I looking at a problem reusing the turbo to downpipe gasket. Rather not draw any attention from my dealer seeing as though my 13' WRX only had 3,400 miles on it.
Thanks,
Jeff

I've done it with success. I don't recommend it when you can get a new gasket for $15

+1 a replacement OEM gasket is too cheap to just not get a new one to be safe. I swapped my DP at 5k and my looked fine but better safe than sorry really.

1. Your dealer doesn't give two ****s if you buy a gasket, its not like the parts counter is attached to SkyNet and will report your purchase to SOA, so quit it.
2. ANY gasket is reusable but will it fail is the question.....that's a question no one can answer but USUALLY you can reuse that one, but when it whistles like a tea kettle, remember I said usually.

Thanks guys I ordered a Grimmspeed heat shield and new gasket. I know all the guys at my dealership so I should be fine. I've bought 6 Subarus from them over the years. Never had a problem with them the SOA rep and I went round and round several years ago but that was it. They know I don't leave anything stock but I do the mods correctly and don't cut any corners.
