-Exhaust manifold gasket - between head & manifold
-Gasket between manifold & turbo
-Turbo Oil return line - 1) gasket for turbo side & 1) gasket for side that bolts to the oil pan
-Gasket that goes between the turbo & CAT

I don’t think there is a gasket for the other end of your down pipe that attaches to the exhaust. Most of them are just welded or have a sleeve w/clamps that connects the 2 pipes.

start soaking all the bolts w/PB blaster or something similar, ESP the 3 that connect from the CAT to the downpipe - they are a royal PIA to get off.

O yeh – ecstuning has a great live chat feature, so take advantage of that

I have the gaskets for between the cat and turbo and cat and exhaust. PM me if you want them, they have been sitting in my box forever.
