hi all. this question occured to me as i was posting about a popping issue. i checked for leaks on the exhaust system and couldn't find any problems. was wondering if you can put a thin layer of clear permatex around the outside of the header/muffler connection for a little added insurance? i can take the muffler off no probs. just trying to be lazy about it. how all do you go about this? -keith

Red RTV worked perfectly.

Make sure you put it on the pipes evenly (I put it on both header side and muffler side, but some say that's not necessary.), wide enough to cover the contact area of the metals. Then leave it overnight.
