    Before I get carried away...

    Whats the easiest way to replaced the exhaust collector gasket? Do I removed the 6 other bolts in the picture or do I need to removed the whole exhaust? If I removed the other 6 bolts is that gasket reuseable? I didnt get another one.. But I do have RTV. Dont think its high temp though..

    I would loosten the 4 bolts that hold the U pipe to manifold, loosten the 4 bolts that hold the U pipe to the front mount, loosten the stinger to U pipe boots (inner and outer) and lift the U pipe up a couple inches and replace the gasket... loctite and re-torque and done

    you should find that dowel and put it back... it is there for a reason, they are locating/alignment dowels. and there is a chance for a leak if the pipe starts to move due to vibration.
