backbox Question

Postby Randy » Thu, 26 Sep 2013 5:48 +0000

Well folks. Got a new performance backbox to make the car actually sound like a sports car, but the plebs never sent me a gasket for it..
I'm wondering if you think it would be all right if I used the one that will already be in place after it's given a good clean, or would I be better sourcing a new one before fitment?
The reason I ask is because I don't think anywhere local stocks gaskets, so I'd have to order one online.

Cheers.
Yeah friend of mine told me to pick some loctite sealant for it and I should be good to go.
Build thread coming soon though. Have bought/fitted a good few cool bits in the last couple of weeks. :)

we probably have a sued gasket but clean both surfaces and smear with exhaust paste and fit it .The heat then dries the paste ,should be fine
