there are tow bolts and a flange that are still (or were at the time of disassembly) bolted to that maniflld that connected to the turbo. That pipe you have the pics of, is sealed with a pretty fragile donut style seal....bothe Y pipes are sealed with this type of seal at that manifold....
Bottom line is that donut needs to be replaced, but on the other side, if you dont replace both pipes, i cant garantee that it wont still leak, which will reduce turbo boost...
If you look at the pipes and see the"wear marks" from the donuts, you will understand why it will leak even with new donuts..
