Up-Pipe donut gaskets

I've found the up pipes are leaking after installing the latest performance upgrades. Is there any reason why putting in new donut gaskets is a terrible idea over spending $500 on the bellowed up pipes?

Money is very tight and if I can get a 100k out of donuts, I can't justify the extra expense unless there is some great benefit over not having to do it again.

Thanks

I can weld. What do I weld? I've never taken the turbo or up pipes off so I have no idea what to look for

Thanks

The main reason people do not put new donut gaskets in is because the job can be a pain to do.

If you decide to go the donut route, make sure to use the Victor Reinz pn# F17250, and not the Felpro pn#8194 gaskets. They cross reference to each other but the 8194 gaskets do not like to crush very easily. The F17250 gaskets are a graphite like material that crush very nicely.
