I'm not sure either I think all auto parts stores carry gaskets and extra bolts.
Yes I am the same way I get very mad very easy when it comes to installing stuff like that I think a nice 6 or 12 pack would help out alot

Note its an X-Pipe not the manifold, that means down stream of the manifold. For the manifold your on it. good stuff though.

Initial post was from Catlin01. Matthew drew you into his concerns. As a rule I tend to focus on the person that made the post. Its his/her post after all and I aim to offer my experience. I've been there. The whole 9 yards and then some.
