The same goes for your hardware. Your downpipe, turbo, or exhaust, as well as manifold hardware experience extreme heat, and after a while they can become rusted, and the threads can stretch upon removal. When you use new hardware or gaskets, the fitment will go on much easier the first time, and you are providing the turbo or exhaust system with an even contact patch the first time creating a perfect seal.
At RallySport Direct we carry a great selection of gaskets, as well as OEM hardware to make your turbo or exhaust installation easier.
