Well i had a big exhaust leak between my turbo (GT28RS) and manifold so i thought it would be easy to fix. Well i was wrong. I forgot how tight the oil and coolant lines are on the new turbo and i had to drain my coolant then do a oil change then when i got the turbo off this is what the gasket looked like

so i didnt have another gasket so i just used some heat temp rtv and i hope it holds
cause dont really want to do that again but in the end car runs so much better and spools alot faster and no more leaks

Re: What i did today (GTI337DUB)

what turbo do you run? Is it t25 or t3? Because I think Nissan has a high quality t25 gasket a lot of people run.
I run no mani/turbo on my T3 flange. I did run one for a while, but the last time the turbo came off I decided to run without one. Fine so far. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
