Fixing up pipes

I have my tranny out to put a new clutch in and noticed some black soot on the up pipes. Now I know I should go with bellowed up pipes but that is not in the checkbook right now.

So I am wondering how well replacing the donut gaskets will fix the small leak. Anyone done this, instead of the bellowed up pipes?

If you can swing it, there is a user on here selling some bellowed up pipes for $220. I wish they were for sale when I did mine.

it should fix it. but sometimes they never reseal like new. there is some felpro gaskets that are better. i cant remember what website sells them at the moment.
good luck getting everthing to come apart. your gonna needs lots of penetrating oil and lots of time to let it sit, possibly days.

I sprayed some wd40 on last night and they all broke loose pretty easy. Felpro 8194 is the part number I found. I'm gonna see if the local Napa can get them.

Well one of the top bolts on the y collector required me to take the y pipe off of the turbo. Only took about half an hour with some wd40 and a screw driver to pry off that flange clamp.

I definitely don't want to do this again so I am just gonna get the bellowed up pipes. Found them for 315 on eBay.
