So I've found a boost leak at the joint between the Turbo and the J pipe. Pulled it off and ordered a new gasket from STM. Installed it and it's still leaking. Bot surfaces have been cleaned thoroughly and the leak is a large one. Initially, I noticed some threads stripped on of the sides but I Retapped it and got a good amount of torque holding it down. Can't figure it out. Any ideas? It's almost like it has to be perfectly lined up and maybe it's slightly off. Doesn't seem to make sense since both bolts are threading and there isn't much wiggle room with them both in but it's the only thing I can think of. Anyone experienced this before?
