Default TMIC gasket?

I have a perrin knock off torqued solutions tmic on my 2011 forester xt (08+ wrx/legacy fitment) and i use a hand cut cork gasket for the turbo to tmic flange with great success on my td04, vf52 and now my 20g. Untill last night when i was doing a pull and blew it out at around 24psi on my 44lb per min turbo. What is every one else using for the gasket on theres and is there a better option? It came with a thick plastic gasket but i could not see that being a good option and had trouble with it leaking on my vf52 should i try that again. For now i am going to cut another cork gasket but just wondering what the other 08+ guys are using these days.

Do you feel the plastic one will not seal? Without looking at it and just taking a short in the dark I am wondering if you put a thin layer of rubber cement on each side and let it dry if it would work better

Is there a groove for an o-ring, like the perrin?

Most people use the chevy water outlet mr. Gasket brand gasket. I can't remember the number. Google legacy gt Mr. Gasket intercooler gasket.

Yep, I would use some high temp gasket maker. I just applied it to the plastic spacer they provide and it sealed fine.

Sounds good i may try the plastic one again or look into the mr gasket thermostat gasket and no it does not have the spot for the oring like the perrin.

Well the mr gasket chevy v8 thermostat gasket is a perfect fit and good quality made of metal with a silicone o ring middle. But of course i broke the threads on yet another turbo over tightening the tmic to turbo gasket. I always feel like i can get one more turn on it and then snap so luckely i had a longer bolt and it was long enough to catch and it tightened down just fine.

i know the feeling. i stripped my front flange bolt on my vf52 putting the perrin spacer in place on my tmic. i got longer bolts at a hardware store and they went all the way down through. its good now. my first perrin o ring was distorted and melted in the tmic.
