Re: 2006 Exige S

I'm graduating now from bolting on parts to master fabrication.

Re: big bore 'crush type' exhaust gasket

Do you mean the manifold to engine gasket or the donut gasket to the cat? My 2bular supplied engine gasket blew like a trooper and was nowhere near the right size for the notes, but a legit toyota one fits and seals perfect.
