I would just call them for the brass donuts (that's what I did back when they first came out). Some folks mill a few thousandths off the donut "flange" to give a bit more compression and others have expanded the uppipe a bit to better fit the donut. At any rate, make sure your pipes have not been eroded by the exhaust leaks or none of it will do any good (and you'll need to replace them). Cheers!
