I have to replace the exhaust manifold to block gasket and the turbo to exhaust manifold gasket on my '87, I'm beginging to smell exhaust fumes in the car and the car sounds horrible whenever I'm on the gas. This would be my first time doing anything major on any car and I was wondering if I there was anything important when replacing the gaskets.
Cheers

The turbo versions of this engine did not come with a exhaust manifold to cylinder head gasket from the factory.. They don't last and then they leak.

As Pete said, not ex man to head gasket. I use a THIN layer high temp RTV (the orange stuff) there, no leaks.

Turbo to ex man gasket should be available at most parts stores. Personally, I find it easier to remove the turbo and ex man as a unit, and remove the turbo from the ex man on the workbench.
