I've used this Rutland stove stuff on two different turbo cars and I would recommend it for the turbine - dp flange, and any flange after that.

I've never used it for the mani - turbine flange, so I can't say if it would work or not (I've always ran no gasket there).

Also, any Ace Hardware should be able to get you the Rutland stuff, some even have it in stock. My original $6 tube is still around, each tube has enough goop to make a bunch of "gaskets".

Good luck

Everytime I used a gasket, it blew apart and I had to pull everything off to put a new one in. Now I don't use any, but I also haven't driven the car 1 ******* mile.....so I cant say that I have no problems. I just remember alot of guys on here over the years recommending to ditch them.

Goodluck with the grease.

We dont use any gaskets on our stuff either, they end up causing more problems then there worth. Plain both surfaces and call it a day.

Had the mani/turbo flange machined to a mirror shine


Installing it back on today.

It might be the Picture but that flange looks like a record.You might want to lap that hing with a stone B-4 you pu it together.

I need suggestions quick: there was a metal gasket (inconel?) between the turbo+downpipe. Do I put it back in or do the "no gasket" treatment there as well? Its a very strong all metal gasket that I really doubt will leak, but if yall think its better without it I'll leave it out.

I'm in the middle of putting everything back in so PLEASE help me out ASAP.

Thanx

I've had a stainless steel gasket there, with 3 layers that does fine. My turbo-Manifold leaks pretty bad though, so I'd be hard to notice a small leak at the down pipe

Thanx guys. I already put it in last night. I also started the car and let it warm up. The high temp grease burned up and formed what looks like a great seal between mani/turbo just like its supposed to. All appears to be great.

Starting on exhaust today
