I want to replace the leaky gaskets either side of my cat converter. I have 4499's and a 2.5" Redback with the stock cat still in use. Are the gaskets available as a kit or separate? Do I need sealant material of some kind?

At work aswell as instaling new gaskets we smeer them with high temp red liquid gasket.
It'll never leak. And sometimes when you put a new gasket in even with it tightened propperly it still leaks.
Pain in the a** when you've done the full exhaust nd have to go undo them and silicone it up.
But the gaskets for that section usually do the job.

Cheers guys. After removal of cat I found that the gaskets were re-usable; just applied lots of exhaust gasket cement and she's all good :)
