    Talking Decat pipe fitting?

    Ok so now I have a decat pipe, will I need a sealing compound to mount it to ghe turbo? Or does the clip form a gas tight seal?

    Ive had the scorpion pre catpipe fitted forabout a year now was a fairly easy job, heatshield was a bit of a pain to get off but once off it was a easy job took less than 1 hr to do. Tip is to chop about a 1/3 off the bottom of heat sheild before you refit it, i just laid it on floor and chisled across it. Ive had no probs with turbo and car is running well sweet now.
