Anyone know where to get a metal gasket to fit the pacesetter DP between the Y pipe and the DP? Blew out the paper one so I need a fix right away.

My suggestion would be to remove it, and measure the ID, OD, and bolt spacing. I seriously doubt it'* anything close to OEM, but we have NFC what to suggest until we know what it is.

Yes,

You need part number "2001" felpro...this is the 3 hole gasket, its 3" diameter..Napa 7.29 here..

Also its not that it blew out because it was paper, it blew out because from the factory the flanges are not very good on the pace setters. Mine go to a machine shop on monday to mill down the surfaces However I'm going with a metal gasket for piece of mind anyway.

I did the research yesterday and found that one to be a perfect fit.
