Should there be donut seals between the exhaust manifolds and the Y pipe? Or is there only a donut seal between the Y pipe and the pipe going to the catalytic converter? Thanks.

Y-pipe to manifolds should just be metal to metal I believe. Manifolds have a ball-like shape and the y-pipe side has the socket shape.

tnkgur is right. Early version of a flex connector. They're now using braided steel to do the same thing. Oddly I've never seen the Fiero version leak or fail but I've had many of the braided steel ones fall apart due to flexing.

Thanks guys. Ordered a seal. I just wasn't sure and needed some reassurance.
