Unhappy turbo to downpipe gasket

On da greddy turbo setup is the exhaust gasket between the turbo and the downpipe the same as stock? If not where would i go to get a replacement for this gasket mine is in two pieces.

if your mating surfaces are flat, you won't need a gasket.

your options are limited . you can get one from greddy, you can buy a used one or not use one at all.

Another option is to go to NAPA or your local autoparts store and pick up a blank sheet and cut your own.

Copper flashing works as well... You can buy a 1' x1' section at the lumber yard.
