i bought my tanabe rm used and it didn't have gaskets and i've been running w/o any. is it ok to run it like this? i see some black residue on the flanges from the exhaust gases so i assume it's leaking. should i get gaskets? also does it affect noise?
want a quick temporary fix.. use corregated cardboard.. did u buy this exhaust used? if it was new.. it should have come with the gaskets.
i had a hand me down GReddy header.. looked around at 15 different places to try to find a gasket for the 4-2 section of the header.. no luck.. but i got rid of those.. after i discovered they were bent
yeah i bought it used. i stated that above. well i don't know how it's supposed to sound, but it's loud, but then again that's normal for this system. so then to me it sounds ok. i was thinking of tracing the flanges and make a cutout and go to the local NAPA autoparts store and find gaskets that closely match what i need. what do y'all think?
