Title: PPE Downpipes install question
Post by: SuperPete on December 04, 2019, 07:49:18 AM
Got my downpipes today, WOW do they look sexy or what, perfection...
No words to describe, excellence at it's beset.
Planing on install this weekend, now the question is:
I only got two gaskets with them, for the connection to the exhaust, what about gaskets for the connection to turbo side? no gaskets?
Also longer pipe comes in two sections and I got no clamp for that, did they missed the clamp and gaskets or it's something I am responsible for.

thank you all

Some gaskets are reusable, but they may have missed something anyway.

Can you post pics of what you have received?

They don't give the turbo to downpipe gaskets on purchase. Some say they are reusable however I would recommend buying new motorcraft gaskets.

100 percent.  I used all new gaskets.  They are dirt cheap so yeah.

Sound's like you are missing a clamp however. They are pretty cheap and easy to find though. NAPA or other auto parts stores/exhaust shop.

Hmm interesting! Where did you purchase the DP from! Non catted version!
 NO Gaskets with mine. Bolts & nuts for Flange to exhaust only...
The Motorcraft Gaskets are for one-time use only IIRC! Z

Picture attached of what I got with the pipes.
Got them from jmautoracing.com, they whereon sale for $830 for catted version, I jumped on it like it was hot, that was 6 weeks ago, thats how much it took for PPE to make and ship, got pipes directly from PPE

always 4-6 weeks out to get pipes from them. I would spray the turbo side studs with liquid wrench about 30 min before taking off the stockers. then I would put anti seize on the 6 studs at the turbo and the 4 bolts at the flanges at the rear.
They are soooooo beautiful for sure!
