It's special in that it's a gasket but made to handle 1,300 without melting. Permatex RTV-type gasket makers give up the ghost at around 500 or 600, so they won't do the job. I'd contact Bob at DieselSite or David at Diesel Manor and ask them. Maybe some sort of a gasket material available at auto parts stores you could use to make your own?
