    I'm after options for turbo bolts, car started making noises today like it had an exhaust leak between the turbo and manifold again and I pulled the charge pipe off to find this. Bolt gone!

    I know Iv read on here about stud conversions with Nord locks etc

    So what is the best option? or any links for kits to buy?

    The bolts you have in there at the moment are not oe, i'd suggest going to your nearest TPS and ordering:
    -3 new bolts -06A 145 540K
    -3 new washers -06A 145 791A
    -Gasket - 06A 253 039H

    Tighten the botls up to the correct torque and that should be it. Audi managed it ok when they built the thing 10 years ago. lol

    That would explain why they are coming loose so often. Probably arent a high enough strength

    Mine used to rattle loose like that so I did whack a load of high temp thread lock in an it stopped them moving. When I dd my engine build I change to stud and nut.
