Default Do I have to buy new gaskets for...

an up-pipe or can I use the stock ones. My car has 17.5k miles and was wondering if it would be best to order new gaskets when installing an aftermarket up-pipe. Any help is appreciated.

you really should get new gaskets for both sides of uppipe, the turbo-downpipe gasket and also exhaust manifolds. i did that and used vishnu's instructions, and have no leaks.

While on the topic of gaskets...
Is the only thing the gasket does, is keep the exhuast from leaking? It serves no other purpose, correct?
Thanks for the help,

Correct. It's made with a deformable material that will act as a seal between the joined piping pieces. When you swicth parts, like the upipe, a new gasket is important because the old gasket is already deformed to the surface of the old pipe.

Uhhh, it's a four-layer steel gasket with a fire ring. When I ordered mine at the dealership, the parts guy thought I was nuts for replacing them. I explained what I was doing, and he said, "We reuse them all the time unless they have physical damage, they are designed to be reused." That's also been my experience with every other multi-layer steel gasket for flat surfaces, such as the gaskets on my nissan.

I don't disagree with buying new ones, but frankly, I wouldn't consider it mandatory.

When just disassembling/reassembling the same set of pipes, reusing gaskets isn't such a big deal. But if you're switching pipes and the differences in imperfections between the pipes you're exchanging are severe enough, there will be a problem. If anything, consider it a cheap insurance policy (an extra $20 spent on a $200-$300 part plus labor is cheap )
