Post Midpipe/Mufler gasket for Mike Shields STi 2.25" setup

Ok, I've sent Mike an email but haven't heard back yet. I received my STi muffler w/custom 2.25" midpipe and installed it a while back. To my suprise and aggitation, it did not come with a gasket for the midpipe/muffler connection.

To anybody who's install this same setup, what did you use? I found one that was close, but I'd like to know if there is a 'right' one to use. Did you get a gasket with the setup?

Thanks for the help.

You can either:

buy some gasket material and cut your own.

order one at the dealer.

Mike should just send you one. While I waited, the stock gasket was trimmed and it worked just fine for a week.

might want to try to hit the DSM lists

as they pretty much stock 2.25, 2.5 and 3 inch gaskets for exhausts as standard fare.

DSm stock is 2.25 inch. usual performance without the loudness agony is 2.5 inch.

check road race engineering at www.roadraceengineering.com or
team rip racing - www.teamrip.com and look for gaskets.

Thanks for the DSM info. I looked at the pic and the issue is the offset of the bolt holes, not the diameter of the hole. It looks like the flange holes are too close. I'm going to go down to an autoshop and ask for a DSM gasket and look at it more closely.

Lucas - You said the stock gasket work for a week - what are you using now?

Thanks,

Steve

I knotched the bolt holes on my stock gasket and re-used it and have not had any problem since. I too had talked to Mike about it and he said that trimming it was fine, but that he didn't have any gaskets for it. It you really think you need a new one, go buy on somewhere or make your own. The stock one works fine and has a big enough opening too.

Thanks - Jon
