I also understand that sometimes the pipe will be worn where it contacts the doughnut so you can't get a good seal.
I'm going to buy new pipes and douhnuts from powerstrokeshop.com for 120 bucks because I believe that the labor involved will be extensive enough that I don't want to take a chance. Also, I drilled a hole in my up-pipe for my pyrometer and when I have it apart I'm going to drill and tap the manifold. I'll be doing mine this summer when I can commute to work on my motorcycle, and I'm not looking forward to it.
There are also bellowed pipes with gaskets you can buy from BWD. They were on sale for 300 last I looked. And 450 if you want ceramic coating.
