    Exhaust leak at downpipe / turbo

    Just found this leak that I originally thought was from the wastegate pivot rod...but now that it's apart I see the flange was not sealed at the bottom. What's best way to solve this? Also, does anyone recognize what downpipe this is? Bought from a member too long ago and no idea who made it.
