the slip together joints on my stainless manifold are sloppy and im worries gas pressures will differ as it leaks through the joints. Any well known tried and tested methods. I thought maybe fire cement but does this crumble with the vibrations? cheers :hangloose

Get proper exhaust assembly paste, which is meant to resist the vibration, there are a few brands, they all seem to do the same.

yep second that....
and use as directed.....
often its a case of warm manifolds.. assemble... then run for so many minutes..

Make sure you clean up afterwards before running or the stuff can ooze out and look crap when it hardens and is stuck to the pipes!!!
You can get it in tubes like sealer.. very good and less messy

You can also buy flanged heat exchangers and J tubes which are supplied with two spare flanges to weld onto the header and this should completely solve the problem of gas escape with the correct gaskets.

Many people use this on their turbocharged engines to maximise spool up and therefore boost pressure.
