Hi all where the best please to get the manifold to turbo bolts the 3 of them
Audi I reckon, about a fiver each though iirc
A engineer or a nut and bolt specialist
Look on ebay for engineering studs, just as good and far less to buy
I paid £1 each for mine
I'd stick with OEM personally, despite the cost. They need to be of a certain hardness, due to the heat the deal with.
I had some made out of stainless steel quite cheap, but went with OEM in the end.
I when for OEM once. They were about £16 but they have to withstand a lot of heat and probably a different grade of steel compared to most normal bolts.
You can get high temp, high tensile ones. I fitted some of the same studs to a mates supra and there still doing fine.
Fair shout dude, if they're still going them all is good. Any links for future reference?
I have them on mine and will still use them when i go BT as i totally trust them. My mates Supra has been on the dyno with the manifold and studs glowing cherry red.
I get them form a local place just up the road from where i live
Bolt & Nut Supplies Ltd, Civils Products, Drainage Merchants
They do not do delivery but everyone will have a place like this near to them, take a stud into the shop and they will match it if you tell them there is a lot of heat passing through them.
Pick up the yellow pages and have a look for a place near to yourself's.
I know of a place near me, called GR Fasteners. Will pop in and ask them. :thumbsup:
They will have them
They are called engineering studs
