Default wtf where can i get a standard t25 drain gasket?

this is retarded, atp wants $4.00 for the gasket and $13.00 for shipping, wtf throw it in a postcard envelope a ship it for 29 cents or whatever it costs now.

also some places seem to suggest that a ball bearing t2 drain is a different size than standard(sr20det t25), then i find different sizes of 43mm 44mm and 45mm center bolt spacing, by my eye and shitty ruler it could be any of those

and does anyone know if i use gasket material and make my own will it hold up to chra temps and hot oil? i'm good at wasting money but it seems ******* retarded to spend almost $20 on this

any suggestions?

O'Reily's has a lot of different gasket materials. Cork, paper stuff, ruberized stuff, etc. They got some that's super dooper oil resisitant. I'd use that. Also seals good so you don't need any RTV or anything.

Go to the Mazda dealership,walk up to the parts counter and ask the guy/gal for a turbo oil drain gasket for the FD3S twin turbo set-up,it's a perfect fit,made out of metal and will last a long time.

I have the part number,but I don't know where to begin to look for it.

The gasket ATP sells has incorrect bolt spacing. I had to cut it slightly to make it fit. The sr20 bolt spacing.
