Earlier, I asked this question: Could this be the source of an exhaust leak. I found a crack in the manifold, but in addition to that, when I started the car after it hasn't been started in a while, I found water forming (from condensation) around the gasket that connects the manifold to the down/front pipe.
Now my question is, does this water mean that the gasket is leaking? Or is it normal for it to let some water pass? When I feel my hand around the gasket, I can not feel any air coming out of the exhaust other than where the manifold is cracked.
EDIT: To be more clear by water I mean the pipe got wet
