Question ARKA Full system ?

So I just picked up a used full TI system for my '04. My question is what am I going to need to install it? Is there special sealant to use on the joints? Can I re-use the Head to header gaskets? Any tips that I should be aware of? Thanks

You can get away with reusing a gasket if it comes off in good condition - but they're pretty cheap so why not replace when you've got it off anyway?

I don't know about the rest there...

+ 1

They are cheap, better to get new ones. Nothing worse then scrimping on them, and after your all done, and come back from your first ride you see exhaust leak off the manifold.

As for sealent, you can get that from local autoparts.
We prefer teflon tape... same as plumbers use to keep pipes water tight.
Has crazy high temp rating, and no mess, and easy to pull apart if needed.
We have used it on over 43 systems over the past 15 years.

Not sure about the Akra but some pipes do not require the use of the OEM gasket. My 04 leo vince does not.
