    What are some good brands of exhaust gaskets. My cat back gasket is blown/leaking pretty bad.

    Our exhausts are 2in or 2.5in? I forget. FWIW I have the TRD cat back.

    Get one from the dealer. Use a thin layer of copper RTV, then set the gasket on the Y pipe, put a thin layer of RTV on the inside of the cat back, and connect.

    Sweet, looks like fun. Thx. Why the dealer for gaskets, do they carry good brands? In the past I have had both well built gaskets and poorly made ones when ordering exhaust parts.

    the OEM gaskets seem less likely to get leaks. In my experience.
