This is a replacement gasket for the downpipe where it meets the turbo. If your adding an aftermarket downpipe or taking off the down pipe to fix a leaking turbo oil line, more than likely your going to need this gasket. This is a good item to have on hand just in case you need it cause your not just going to run down the street to your local auto parts store and pick one up. Be ready, and do the job right the first time.You only need one.
MINI OEM gasket. MINI Torque spec for the downpipe to the turbo is 29.5 ft. lbs.

Absolute necessity when reinstalling the downpipe. Quality part.

Replacement gasket with a perfect fit. Fingered sense I was doing the oil line swap myself, it would be best to have any part I may need. Low and behold a new gasket was necessary, fixed a small unknown leak in the exhaust. Being an item from my first order with these guys, I am very impressed with quality, and accuracy. Not to forget a great price, and a smooth easy website!

It's a gasket that works as designed.

I appreciate that Detroit Tuned supplied the necessary torque spec of 29.5 ft. lbs as I couldn't find the spec in the Bently repair manual.

I replaced this while upgrading my downpipe, this is also important to replace when replacing the turbo oil line. High quality product and easy to install.

Arrived on time and as advertised. I replaced the turbo oil lines and while I'm already in there it only made sense to replace the clamps, gaskets...
