    Replacment downpipe gaskets and bolts

    Hey guys,

    Finally got our custom downpipe gaskets in. They are made for us by Vibrant and it's the highest temp material they produce for these types of gaskets. They were a little more than the foil ones but I think we're worth it. We've got a nice intro price of $19 for gaskets+bolts for anyone who needs em. Yes I'm looking at you eBay downpipe guys.

    Why not wedge lock washers?

    We've been using this same hardware on our proprietary downpipes for awhile and have a comfort level with it. But always open to changing things up should some problem crop up. If anything I'd probably include 8 nuts instead of 4 to double nut it.

    Depends on the material of the nut/bolt I guess. I find that split washers tend to be less effective with harder metals as it cant bite into them. Though wedge locks would inherently have the same issue as the knurling doesnt bite. Is that galv with black oxide?

    Just curious, are those 13mm bolts? I've come across a lot of different hardware sets doing dp installs and anything over 13mm is a pita. I think the hardware supplied with VK's were 17mm lol
