hey I will be needing an exhaust gasket pretty soon and I was wondering if anyone sells any pre-made gaskets that would fit this setup.

These pictures are of a downpipe-ypipe. The downpipe "Y's" out.

Any recommendations for shops that could custom make a gasket for me?
Also, the previously used gaskets were a paper/metal type, I know of other RX-7 owners who have used copper for their exhaust gaskets.

lol thanks Chad
Coming straight off the turbo it should be ~3"
but the single pipes afterwards look like 2.25 or 2.5"

I believe you want "deadsoft copper" gaskets. Those are the good ones.
