Ofcourse you should, they're only a couple of quid if that and get some asbestos free jointing paste.

It's generally red in colour and referred to as high temperature sealant or exhaust paste etc. At least this is what i ve been using in the past. Say to the guy there at the motor factor what you are up to and he will give you the correct stuff.

sealent will usually replace the need for a gasket. The stuff i used was grey in colur, messy if you get it on your hands but never the less, good stuff.

its a good idea if you do alot of short journeys to leave a small hole at the bottom of the join for condensation to drip out!!
