Default Exhaust leak at axle back

Just got my nameless axle back installed for my 14' WRX hatch and after installing and using new bolts/gasket provided i'm still having a leak where the AB connects to the mid-pipe. Going to contact Nameless tomorrow, but wanted to make sure it's still ok to drive until then?


Thanks

you'll be fine. You could drive with an open downpipe if you truly wanted to.

I got a Perrin Axle back and using their gaskets had two minor leaks. I purchased new OEM gaskets from RSD and it sealed it right up. I have heard some other people use some exhaust sealant as well, a search might bring up some good brands to go with.

You could get a double thick grimspeed gasket.

Thanks everyone.

Does Grimmspeed make 2.5" gaskets for midpipe > AB connection? Don't see any on their site. I spoke with Nameless and going to try doubling up with the OEM gasket and the gasket provided..hopefully it will work.

Most of the new gaskets are self salable.
