Manifold to midpipe question

What kind of gaskets will my 5.0 take where the mid pipe meets the manifolds? Just curious if it's the cone or flat metal ones

Re: Manifold to midpipe question

If I can remember right, you only have a gasket on the passenger side, sometimes called the collector gasket. Go to your local ford dealer, they are usually under 10 bucks for one.

hope this helps

Re: Manifold to midpipe question

If you are having trouble getting it to seal I have used Permatex Ultra Copper silicone on exhaust and headers with very good results.
Just spread it on thin with your fingers, let it dry then put a light coat of grease on the mating surface. It's worked every time for me.

Cool thanks I'll have to remember that for when (hopefully) I open my exhaust up for Christmas that hopefully my wife got me (fingers crossed)
