How do I go about locating exhaust leaks? I'm pretty sure I have one.
When I turn on the car it smells a little more like exhuast than it used to.
Maybe a little louder, not sure. Maybe just placebo. Is there a technique or
tool that I can use to figure out if something is leaking?

exhaust leaks.

best thing to do is put it up on a set of ramps, and look at the joints where the pipes come together. you might see black soot marks from the gaskets, this would be signs of a leak. the same goes for the header manifolds. also look for anywhere the pipe may have come loose.

if I find these just replace the gaskets then? Sounds good, and easy then.
Probobly the gaskets. I never switched them when I went Turbo, just reused
then all (110K) except the donut one mid exhuast that I had to buy.

gaskets.

yea, its never really a good idea to reuse exhaust gaskets...unless you just put them in and are doing an exhaust swap...
on a nother note, where can i get some gaskets for a stromung exhaust? i need em all.... can i just get these anywhere? standard flange sized ??
