Last night I took off my stock exhaust to bolt on my new Akrapovic exhaust and noticed there wasn't a gasket to the header on the stock one.
I checked, and made sure it wasn't stuck to the pipe or head. WTF? I just read another member here had that experience. Is this by design or a production flaw?

my stock exhaust looks like the fumes it was spitting out were of a strong rust/orange color, wondering if that had anything to do with no gasket, or another symptom.

I'm adding a gasket, found something I could get over night;

There should be a round gasket right around the inlet, probably held in place by pressure instead of the bolts. Check this link and you will see what I mean. It should be item #1

thanks Mel, found the little bugger. It was so clean still, it looked like it was part of the old exhaust. Popped her off the old onto the new!
