Default exhaust confusion, im about to end my life?!

ok thanks to raykwoks stupidity i didnt know the up pipe i bought off of him was header specific so i used a routing bit and chewed my header flange up so that it lines up, so far so good on that
but
the stupid gaset doesnt look like its gonna seal at all
its the flex gpmoto uppipe and the seal ring on the gasket is inside of the hole on the gpmoto UP but fits find on the header

is it gonna leak?
wth should i do?

i was thinkin of making a gasket out of copper and just squeezing the crap out of it hoping itd seal

if the only way to make it work is custom, then do it. Get some high temp gasket material, and make one. Copper would work, but if you layeredit, it would probably work better.

The gooey liquid gasket material starts to break down at VERY low temperatures. It works great for grocery getters that are driven as such... but if your EGT's get much above 1,000 degrees expect to hear a *pop* and then suffocate soon after. There are places where you can get small sheets of the aesbestos/ceramic exhaust gasket stuff and cut it to the size/shape you need, any decent exhaust shop should have some of this stuff on hand.

thats the stuff I tried to say, but it didnt come out right. I didnt mean that blue rtv stuff, I wouldnt trust that on exhaust parts.

none of that gasket maker will work. even the exhaust liquid gasket will break down on up/down pipes because they get VERY hot. You must find a way to make sure the flanges line up flat, and use the metal gasket that is intended to go inbetween. sorry to say, but if its not flat, it wont seal.

If all your stuff is so close to fitting try this:

1. Loosen all the bolts up to the header/head bolts.
2. install the up/down pipe/turbo loosely.
3. Use a pry bar to positition the componants.
4. Tighten the bolts while you hold the parts in place.

Believe it or not, you can gain alot of clearance this way, because there is small amounts of slop in all those bolts holes.

what is the pipe made out of? instaed of making a spacer, the pipe can simply be cut, and have a small piece of pipe welded in to make it longer.

Dont you love all the obstacals of AFI? Dont get too pissed yet, there will be more problems to come

Thank god that I learned that any 3" exhaust for the WRX will fit our cars with some slight modification to the hangars.
