Damn, you hit the nail right on the head!
For most vehicles the up pipe doughnut will fail eventually, especially when increasing HP and turbo PSI, and also increased EGT's, a completely stock rig is less prone to this issue but not many of us keep these rigs stock.
I also bet you would buy the up pipes after having to change out the doughnut cause most people never want to do it again. Its a PITA to get to unless you pull your tranny. $500 IMO is a good deal to be assured you no longer have any leaks an will never have to replace this stuff again.
Go to a shop and you will spend almost $500 in labor for them to change a doughnut that may fail again......
