I'm going to be swapping my downpipe from my 04 to a 04 with a stock downpipe.

What hardware should I buy to replace what's in there.

Oem gaskets turbo to dp and dp to catback. If it's got the oem catback you may very well have to drill out the rusted studs and put in new nuts and bolts. For the turbo studs you NEED to soak them in pb blaster for days before you swap or you most likely will break or back out a stud. If that happens you can be screwed pretty badly.

I have done this a bunch of times, PB blaster is a god send and is easy to find.

Liquid wrench is supposed to work a little better, I never noticed a difference.

Kroil works the best, but is harder to find and much more expensive.
