From my side of the jackstands I wouldn't bother with these ones again. I'm not even interested in trying a replacement set from them if it were offered.

I installed my art pipes yesterday. The z1 3 bolt metal gaskets are horrible. Any solutions to this or alternate gaskets people use? Did metal gaskets + rtv worked for anybody?

I used a combination of the Berk gaskets and copper RTV, I wouldn't waste my money on the Z1 metals again.

I too had a nightmare of a exhaust leak after installing these gaskets and I choose to avoid these gaskets like the plague. I had to waste time and redo my exhaust because of these gaskets. I ended up using the Fast Intentions gaskets and fortunately I did not have a exhaust leak anymore.
