Hi all - Welcome back for the second time this month!

I apologize for the inconvenience of the site being offline. The site was down for technical reasons, but it didn't help that I was of offline for two weeks (camping and travel). Once I got back, it took a while to get things sorted out. That's resolved, and the site is now back up. Huzzah!

Please take a minute and read the Site News thread I've posted in the General section, and feel free to comment. Thanks!

From my experience in a worst case scenario I would go without a gasket between turbo and manifold, but nowhere else.  Also in a worst case scenario if going without a gasket you can spread some rtv on one surface and bolt down and any possible pinhole leaks would fill with carbon soon enough.  Since you are throwing on a new turbo I would recommend doing it right.  There are a few different 5 bolt flange patterns but you should be able to search and get one off ebay for cheap and quick.

I've burnt through several gaskets here and at the turbo adapter. I bought some MLS gaskets off of Fleabay and they seem to be holding up better.
