Re: Exhaust sealent .

I use Permatex Red or Copper RTV and have had outstanding success with it. So much so, I no longer use header gaskets at the heads, just a thin bead of this RTV (even on race cars). No leaks, no problems, o2 sensor safe.

Re: Exhaust sealent .

On slip joints, grease.

It burns in and makes a seal but will allow the slip joints to come apart again.

Certainly what I have heard and read.
It is cheap enough to try anyway!

Re: Exhaust sealent .

If the slip joints are good you can use grease for assy and disassy, makes it easier but grease is not a sealant. If the joints are sloppy use any 100% silicon sealer, you know the stuff they make hot pads and trivets out of. Can be kind of tuff to separate though.
