^Well in my case I have a TE custom exhaust=very crappily made. The damn vband flanges dont mate up prefect on the turbo or the bottom half of the downpipe. So I figure Ill try these cuz I got to fix my exhaust anyways.

vbands dont leak given the surfaces are perfectly flat and they weren't inadvertently warped during the welding process. i put a thin bead of silicone gasket maker on my vband before mating them together and it works great.

my wastegate vband came with a copper gasket

vibrant actually has a special vband with a middle channel that holds their silicone gasket.

i think more and more manufacturers are seeing that gaskets are nice to have to get a real nice seal.
