    My RS5 Yoshi slip on pipe fit into the OEM one, but no matter how much I torque the fastner bolt, there is still some play causing exhaust leak.

    Bought as is:
    -No clue on the year of the pipe.
    -No gasket (none shown on the install instructions from Yoshi either).

    I was recommended to use "Heavy Duty Tiger Patch", muffler or tailpipe instant repair tape.

    Does anyone have any experience with this stuff? Or any recommendation to fix the leak?

    Thanks.

    Sounds like when tighten down goes the slip on moves at the joint? Can you see the leak?

    If it pretty tight as is and you if solidly attached you can try the paste/tape items. If leak is bigger one of your parts might be out of round. I had a similar problem (slip on end was oval) and I pulled everything off and a car exhaust shop fixed me up in 5min.

    Good Luck.

    Yeah I can see the leak. When the clamp is tighten down, I can still wiggle the pipe. The pipe is the same shape, just slightly too big.
