    My "OEM Grade" MagnaFlow cat broke at one of the welds (cat/pipe joint nearest turbo) after 5 years so I'm replacing it. (BTW, my original cat lasted ~11 years so you be the judge.) Just got the old unit out. Last shop apparently used some copper based gasket sealer on the turbo to cat flange...

    I have done a good amount of research on this to no avail. More info is always better than less in my experience so let me start from the beginning... This is my 3rd b5, my first 2.8 though. I bought it just before winter with a little over 100k miles. I planned on doing the timing belt and a...
