Just got the exhaust done on my '26 and am wondering what others have used for packing around the pipe and between the manifold and manifold nut.

Brian, I use an exhaust donut, I think from a GM engine gasket set, that fits the pipe. Grind off the OD to match the inside of the manifold.
We were able to purchase the correct exhaust gasket for the manifold end, and for the joint where the exhaust pipe goes into the tubular backbone and muffler we used the packing for an "airtight stove door" This works well.`

Thanks for the info fellas. Another member pointed me to Gasket City and they have them in stock, got one coming in the mail.
Just in case you have some leak I was very successful with a high temperature sealant that comes in tubes.
