    I'd suggest bolting the pipe to manifold the same way too. 5 ft. lbs in criss cross pattern, then 10 ft. lbs, etc...

    (Note: it does help to clean the bolt and hole threads with a tap and wire wheel. If there's a build up of gunk it can give false readings of being tight, when it's actually not. Also any dried sealant in the bolt hole may prevent the bolt from bottoming out.)

    If you're going to use an RTV silicone, make sure to use it sparingly. You don't want it oozing into the water passages and restricting your coolant flow. After everything is torqued in order, and in increments make sure there is uniform oozing of silicone all the way around the part. If you got 1/8" bead in one spot, and no oozing in another, something is wrong.
    Sounds good. , thanks for the reply. Gonna grab sum silicone today

    Iím gonna do all that, run it on garden hose. And then pop the pipe off to check to see if water did get in, if all good Iíll reinstall


    Is there a way to check for water other then popin the pipe back off I wonder

    In your picture, what is that black stuff on the left?

    If that's an oily goo that seeped under the gasket, that might be the problem. If it is seeping under the gasket, once you add water pressure it's going to push right into the exhaust stream.

    If that is the case, you will need to have the pipe and exhaust manifold machined flat to get a good gasket seal.

    If you're using RTV sealant, are you waiting 24 hrs. for the sealant to dry before testing?

    If this guy is parting one out, might look into the expansion pipe.

    Look normal? Water inside exhaust manifold

    UPDATE
    So I put rtv silicon on both exhaust side and manifold side with the gasket in middle waited a bit then put together and waited then really tightened it

    Iím not taking it back off to check for water


    I checked the plugs and they are carbon black
    Before they would be white and wet

    Let it run for 20 minutes or so reving it and idling on the hose

    Iím hoping itís sealed this time

    Yes seals are being changed I wasnít worried about them right now. From leaving it run that long
