Angry 02 Gt 3rd gasket!!!! Going crazzzyyy

OK so on the passenger side there's the doughnut gasket on the header and the h pipe well i have headers and it keeps blowing the gasket and irritating the heck out of me. but wait there's more my friend has an 03 gt and has the same exact problem. he doesn't have headers so that eliminates the header idea and in-proper installation is eliminated cuz i took mine to 1 muffler shop and he took his to another so what do we do now?

if u have a aftermarket hpipe or xpipe check the flange, my was welded wrong and i had to grind the flange straight.also make shur u tight both bolts evenly all the way down. also i found that if u down shift a lot it tends to blow them out

I also usually go back and tighten it a little bit more after youve heated the pipes and gasket up.
