Question 3rd cat/test pipe replacement: need new gaskets?

I have a test pipe in the mail, do I need a new gasket for install? I believe one end is a slip fit clamp, the other appears to be a traditional 2 hole gasket? Would rather have a replacement on hand (if necessary) before I dig in.

Thanks.

Wouldn't hurt to have one on hand, but I just reused the gasket that was there.

Thanks, any issues with the install? Looks pretty straight forward.

Same as agentdr8. I had a test pipe with the Lotus sport exhaust (titanium w/ blue tips). I then switched up to the plak. I just reused the gasket as it was in perfect shape and resealed just fine at the collector.

Probably one of the easiest things to do if you're able to turn a wrench/ratchet.

I'm used to starting with a torch and cutting wheel thanks to winter salt, this should be refreshing.
