exhaust leak problem

Hi, I replaced a front pipe on my buddy's '94 tercel a while back, but there's still a little hiss coming out of where I bolted the pipe into the manifold. The gasket is fine. Is there a liquid gasket that I can apply to the end of the pipe so it seals to the manifold? I tightened this thing as tight as possible, but it's still hissing!

Thank you

You should tighten the bolts a little at a time in a pattern sequence. After the tightening is done,the pressure will be even all around the mating surface and shouldn't leak exaust.

Blown out gasket, loose/unevenly tightened nuts, or cracked/warped manifold.
