So I decided to fix a few exhaust leaks last night and used a rivet and nut on an exhaust flange. It works for now. One other thing, high temp silicone sealant is an amazing product.

It worked for a couple hours then it went back to leaking. I took it off so yea, lesson learned, rivets are not good exhaust studs  :aok:

Why not use a bolt and nut? Also that high temp silicone is really only useful to hold the gaskets in place while assembling. You need to make sure your hangers are in place and solid or else the y pipe gaskets will keep blowing.
