the gasket in question is near the exhaust manifold you should see two or three threaded bolts loosen the nuts and pull back the pipe to free the donut gasket and replace.

what about the fact i found no gasket and the parts guy said there was no donut gasket listed on the computer?

i have found some exhaust to be modified so therfore may not be one! Also that dont give a crap about your part and just there to get a pay check hate to say it but have come across quite a few picking up parts for my employer. So i would check w/ another dealer and or rep. part store
