Default Long time reader, first time post.

I just picked up a 1996 impreza L 2.2 with a lot of personality. I am currently repairing an exhaust leak between the two converters, leaking from a previous repair (4" pipe with clamps). To prevent another repair in the future, i was wondering if there is a high temp sealant that would be of any merit after replacing the exsisting leaking pipes (leak is at clamp/pipe contact point) I would post a link to a particular sealant i have come across, rated to 1000degF, but I'm a noob, so maybe someday soon.

any input is apprecieated.
Love,
Krizzo

I wouldn't bother attempting to repair the exhaust w/ clamps and sealant. Your best bet IMO would be to just bring the car to a muffler shop and have a new exhaust pipe bent up and welded in, or to find a board member w/ a spare exhuast and pick that up.

Good luck w/ your new car.

I believe that it is stainless, but I've been wrong before. My stock exhaust is/was 7 years old when I pulled it off- not in bad shape at all.
