Up Pipe gasket info

I noticed today I had some soot on the top side of my drivers side up pipe. Anybody have any part#'s and prices. Does autozone carry the gaskets or would I have to go to my local dealer or would International Trucks parts house have them. Thanks for any info.

The best up pipe donut is the ones from Car Quest. Part # F17250, they are a chevy exhaust gasket. They don't leak if installed correctly and if they do leak there is plenty of adjustment in them. I don't like the stock donuts, but that is me.

Keep Strokin'

They are twice as thick as the stock ones so you have to crank them down to get them to seal. The trick is to use a ton of anti-seize on every moving part of the donuts, flange and bolts. I always pre fit then when I install them so I can relay crank on them out of the engine compartment. I have recommended these to a ton of folks all with good results. Plus, unlike the stock ones, if you end up with a leak down the road you can actually tighten them up and stop any leaks.

Mine hold up to 53-54psi of back pressure(Yes my turbo operates at 1:1) and I have no signs of any leaking.

Can the pipes be unbolted and taken out from under the truck or just enough to get gaskets on. I've seen on someone elses site that they removed turbo, IC pipes and parts like that to do the install.

To me, it is too easy to take out the turbo than to try to work around it. With the turbo out and the down pipe removed from the truck the up pipes are a piece of cake. This is the only way I will do them anymore. It is a 2.5 hour project if I have it in high gear but with BSing with the guys it can take up to 4 hours.

I have read about doing it with the turbo still in the truck, just not for me.
