Default Re: muffler gasket blowout

I never use gaskets on exhaust, they will just blow out at some point. I use Permatex High Temp Copper Silicone. Put a thin coat on both surfaces and assemble, then let it set over night before using. I never blow out copper silicone. I even use it on street rods and in the past various race cars. Also without a gasket there is far less chance of the bolts coming loose which is caused by the gasket getting thinner with time by the gasket being compressed.
Its all fun and games until someone loses an eye, then its just fun!
