i know you guys are gonna say it was a bad idea to get short tube headers for a sohc but im flipping the car around next summer it will be done and sold. anyways, i have a leak where i bolt the flange together at the donut. the car hasnt been tuned before and had no gasket like usual, will a donut gasket fix this issue? the donut itself from the factory is a little crumbled away at the outer ridge. towards the actual entrance of the pipe is perfect, thanks for any help. ps could you post a link to the part i need?

If you're talking about what I think you are, it's that donut thing after the cat? I've had 2 Neons and seen another one I was going to buy where they all leaked there. My fix: remove and replace with a straight piece of exhaust pipe (weld it preferably)
