Re: [DML] exhaust problem

  When you put the manifold back on I recommend using a sealer on the
gasket surfaces.  I use a product called Flo-Ex that I get from my
exhaust guy.  It's a thin liquid that is brushed onto the surfaces
before assembly and expands with heat.  I don't know if it's available
non-commercially though...
Another product that I have had good luck with is Acousti-Seal made by
Walker.  It's a thick black goo that you put a thin layer on the
surfaces, then it dries to a medium-hard material that is easy to
clean off later.
  Whatever you use the goal is to stop small leaks from imperfect
surfaces before they can erode away the gasket.  If the manifold and
head have been machined it's not an issue, but if not a good sealant
applied correctly is cheap insurance.
