Anyone know where the best place is to buy new gaskets? Are they expensive from the dealer?

they're cheaper than the AR Bomb Proof gaskets and just as good from many testimonials on this site. I went with the AR gasket set, but if I had it to do over again I'd get the oem replacements.

no, only #6 and the accompanying hardware (if don't want to use the existing hardware).

not to hijack but could someone point me to a dyno comparison of stock vs. aftermarket dps?i have read more /better turbo spooling ,quicker response, and the hp gains are comparable to a good e85 mix. don't get me wrong these are all good improvements but would like to see independent dyno .before and after.

There's really no point in getting downpipes on a stock vehicle. You will find nearly 60WHP just getting a tune and keeping everything else stock.

Downpipes mated with a tune can yield about 20WHP on top of the gains from the tune. (maybe even a little more).
