Was that plasti dip? Also **** open difs, nissan should have said this is blasphemy and no truck should have ever came with an open rear end. Truck wants to be sideways, but it acts all retarded. To the junk yard for a ls dif!!!
Anyways, on my t4 turbo flange i have an ever so slight leak. Ive been using squish stainless steel ones. They work just fine for like a week or two then seem to start a minor leak. my mating surfaces where flat last time i checked. But i was gonna go with one of the pressed metal ones like this:http://www.ebay.com/itm/Turbo-T4-Exh...51140358304%26
Copper spray and flat gaskets. Don't run those ebay 3 layer ones. They blow out and cause headache. I've had very good luck with the flat stainless ones so has everyone around here. Unless you're doing the manifold, then its double up stockers.
S14 is CLEAN
ALSO!!!! Got a job at the shop i built my engine at and do all my work at! 10-15 hours a week, shop *****.
