You could try getting high temp copper sealant at autozone, it comes in a little tube. Put a thin coat around your pipe, put it back together, tighten it down and wait a day to start it. I've used it before to seal up minor leaks

So this is what TYGA sent me -

Sometimes you'll have a minor leak where the slip fits are - and carbon buildup over a short period of time tends to seal things up. You might try loosening up the manifold bolts and mounting bolts a touch, giving it all a good wiggle to settle in, then retighten the various bolts. I've had success getting a perfect union/fit this way.
