ok so im trying to put my daytona back together but i noticed there was no gasket between the mani and the turbo and the same goes for the turbo to the o2 houseing... what gives? i called up dodge asking for the turbo gaskets and they said they dont see any such listing... do you guys use gaskets? and if so where did you get them? or did you make them? i need help asap cuz my tags expire on the 10th and i havent gotten her running yet cuz of this lil detail.

you can use wheel bearing gease. Once it goes threw a few heat cycle's the gease will crystalize forming a seal(just like a gasket):thumb:

I use the tan stuff myself ;)

just make sure both surfaces are FLAT ; run a flat file over them to knock down any high spots ; then apply a moderat layer of grease to both surfaces ; don't Overtorque ! use hi-temp antiseize on all bolts liberally

I hereby nominate this topic as "the most often asked ? in the Engine - Turbo forum" ; maybe it should be a sticky or FAQ (if it isnt already ;) )
