How to seal header/muffler joint?

1. Should I really care, as it's a flow through muffler?
2. Can I use some copper based hi temp sealant around the joint?

I cut up a pop can and it worked. A beer or energy drink can might work better.

I used a fire rated silicone from a BBQ shop and it did the trick as I had a slight leak from the mid pipe to header pipe join

DRC also makes exhaust gaskets. I found that when i went to pull out the FMF alum spacer that even though i was getting the exhaust leakage I couldnt easily get it out. Nearly had to beat it out of the slip on muffler portion and ended up having to replace with a new FMF alum spacer at $20.
I see that DRC (Dirt Freak) also makes an exhaust joint gasket that is more like the OEM joint material and might work on the FMF pipe.
