Ok I bought some modified twins already pre-assembled with an exhuast manifold and everything, which is also pre-assembled... and I need an Exhuast manifold gasket for them obviously before I put it all back on...

I called Toyota just now and he was a little confused because he saw two of them, a front and a rear... one was $29, and the other was $40 ... the seller of the turbos told me I needed one and it was $40, Im sure he knows what he is talking about, but I wanted to double check to make sure exactly which one I need... or if I possibly need BOTH?

I need the one that goes between the head and the Exhuast manifold... and this guy in the parts department didnt seem to be able to give me a 100% sure answer if I needed both or not, which sucks..

So if anyone could answer me that real quick Id appreciate it, if I dont get an answer somewhat soon I might just order both... which I dont want to do, but I do need them by next week thursday/Friday.. assuming I have the Twins by then, and Toyota sometimes takes a while to get parts in.

Thanks a lot... I appreciate it.. I wanna get my dawg back on the road!

If you're replacing your blown stock turbos, forget about the new seals. Your old seals ARE reusable. I've done this before and there are only 4 gaskets which have to be replaced. I'm not sure if these might be included with your new turbos, but considering the super low price, I say just get them. I believe they are called the "water bypass gaskets". They are the ONLY coolant gaskets which connect to the turbo. You will need 2 per turbo for a total of 4. All 4 gaskets will cost your about $5.

V8this... the turbos are COMPLETELY ASSEMBLED... the whole assembly is already put together for me, the exhuast manifold is even attached to the turbos.. I dont need any of those as far as I know, because everything is all put together.. Im not getting a bunch of seperate parts, Im getting a full assembled set of ported and polished twins....

Dont those parts you are talking about all go into the turbo assembly? well if its already put together then I dont need to worry about them... I would imagine... just the exhuast manifold gasket... Toyota told me I needed a new one, and so did the seller... I just wanna know which one heh... front or rear, or both.

I think the confusing part is, that the twins I bought are coming with an exhuast manifold, and I believe most of the time people dont sell those with the twins, this exhuast manifold has a hole for the EGT probe tapped already.. thats why I get the manifold too... all assembled into one big piece.

Not entirely correct. The gaskets I'm referring to connect the turbo assembly to the cooling system. I highly HIGHLY doubt the coolant hardlines are included.

Ah... ok I see what your saying... Ill go monday and order all of the gaskets, thanks for the info.. I thought you were talking about gaskets that would have already been assembled into the assembly.. I got ya now though :)

Im just making sure I have everything I need.. I dont think Ill be putting the turbos in or taking them out, simply because I have never done ANYTHING with a Turbo before... so I dont really know if I could do it... I have looked over the service manual on MKIV.com but I still fear I would run into a complication since I have never done anything of the sort... Ill probably send it off to my friends shop.. he quoted me $350 and some change to remove and install the new ones.. sounds like a fair price I would think.

Don't order all the gaskets, you most likely won't need more than 5-6 of them, so why spend $100+? Wait for the kit, and determine what you need once your stockers are uninstalled.
