I think option two looks better to me.

The groove looks to wide in the first one.

yep. it clamps til both sides touch and the clamp still spins and the elbow and downpipe dont fit snug enough. im thinking of trying to maybe make a gasket or something. i used to have sheet of lead. it would have made a perfect gasket but i ditched it. i knew i should have kept it.... damn

thats what always happens you keep something for a long time thinkin you are gonna use it... then you dont and through it away and next day shoulda kept it... yeah mine does the same thing and i also have of black depositsof smoke on the firewall from where i guess its leakin out from between the where the down pipe meets the outlet

did you pull the manifolds to pain or did you just spray it in there and hope for the best coverage? also how rusted "stuck" were your bolts that bolt the cross pipe and up pipe?
