Dry not a drop of sealant. I don't think it is really needed unless you worry too much and need that to put your mind at ease. Of all the trucks, cars, Semi'* that I see run these style of clamps I have never seen sealant put on them or them leaking as long as you do it properly.

I wouldn't necessarily use sealant on a downpipe, cutout, or other component (like the crossover) that you would intend to remove or disconnect occasionally. But on any component downstream that you wouldn't normally disconnect, it'* good peace of mind.

Exhaust leaks are annoying. :P

Agreed, if you never plan on taking it off then knock yourself out.

Sounds like its AccuSeal by unanimous decision.

As to sealant, I'll test without, as all the joints in this setup want to be "reversible" in case I need to do a "quick change" back to stock briefly once a year or so...

Agreed Andrew...we even have Bill W coming around... soon we'll have that sealant only on the exhaust tips.
