Collector Leak?

I've got an annoying exhaust leak coming from the passenger side of my 2001 Bullitt. Its not coming from the flange gasket but more towards the collector. Is there a gasket there that could be leaking? I tried searching for it but I keep coming up with flange gaskets. The obvious cure is long tubes and an H-pipe but it's just not in the cards right now. Anyone else have this problem on their 2V?

The passenger side has a gasket and a lot of times it is a paper one that breaks away, I recommend a metal one, also the driver side does not have a gasket, it is a cup and bell kind of flange (don't know the exact term)

Yes there is a gasket and they are ver flimsy. Go buy one for less than 10 bucks and go ahead an install it. No more than 1 hour for the job
