    Wow, look at that poor gasket match, presumably on the one upside down. How bad was the gasket?

    so this was a thing yesterday.

    one of the gaskets was on upside down. i brought the manifold to a machine shop and got it milled, he said it was pretty bad.

    im hoping i dont have to do the other side soon.

    will be putting this back on this weekend, hopfully that resolves the issue.
    I was gonna say the sound kinda reminded me of when I had a leaking gasket on my manifold. That looks a lot like mine did before similarly milling and getting new seals. All quiet after that.

    e.
    You should always do both. You've done more than half the work to do one side - getting the crossover off.

    Good think you had the manifold resurfaced, if you skip that step you'll be doing it over in a few months!

    yeah i know, im just trying to get the problem one out of the way first, but i wouldnt be shocked if the drivers side fails soon.

    Yes, I believe the cat is really in the way to get to the bottom...
