Default need new "donut gasket"?

i recently had my 2002 v6 ranger inspected at a local shop. it didnt pass due to an exhaust leak. i was told by the guy who performed the inspection it was due to a "donut gasket". i then took the truck to a local muffler shop and the guy said he tightened the nuts and bolts, but that was all he can do. i then asked him what it would take to fix it and he responded by sayung i needed a "wipe-out kit?" and that would run around $900. so if anyone could tell me if there is a donut gasket and estimate what it would take to fix and maybe a ballpark figure.

on another note i had my tansmission replaced about 6 months ago, and the guy who looked at my exhaust asked if i had that done, i responded yes and he smiled and said 'there you go".
