Red RTV is made for sealing exhaust joints.

Huh, interesting. Guess I'm wrong again. I used it on my Altima exhaust header and DP connections, never had a problem.

it's more made for correcting sealing issues when a gasket is used. aside from the obvious lack of stack height it's not as strong. it also blows out easily if the joint loosens.

it's really not the correct way to do it but will probably work for a while.

Yeah, I'll probably buy the $15/piece gaskets and put them in eventually

I don't know if OBD2 gaskets are different than OBD1, but there are some $2 a piece OBD1 gaskets at Pelican that have sealed perfectly for me even though I've used them twice...

most exhaust shops can match something up for you.
