Re: blown exhaust

Its pretty tough doing it on a 2post lift in a garage to get at wouldnt even dream of it on just putting car on axle stands to be honest but if you up for a challenge why not god loves a tryer some of them exhaust bolts and studs will more than likely have to be heated to get them off cause they be heat seized or you could soak bolts in wd40 or penetrating fluid and hope they open bolts, speaking from some years in the trade and for a perfect job ya I would replace gaskets to

Downpipe to turbo gasket Impreza Turbo 1993-2000 Classic : Subaru Impreza Downpipe Gasket

Downpipe to centre section gasket Impreza Turbo 1993-2000 Classic : Subaru Impreza O Ring , Cone or Olive Gasket

Worse parts getting the heatshields off underneath, though there seemed to be more on mine than me mates, the downpipe ive found were relatively easy-never had any trouble undoing from turbo(luckily)

Have had a another mate do one up on axle stands but ive got access to a couple of mates`s 2 post ramps-definately made it easier.

Never had a turbo off so cant say on that one.
Best sealant used to date- Fourstar ultimate paint protection *Now discontinued* Rebranded as sonus SFX4 paint sealant-Try some ya wont be dissapointed.
