Factory Studs can be a very difficult element of working on these cars, so we addressed this with a known solution: titanium replacement studs.
They are made from grade 5 titanium and are specifically intended to not corrode or otherwise seize when being serviced. The stud threads are rolled, and the nut threads are machined which creates a mating surface of different hardnesses, thus reduces the tendency to seize and gall.
These are for the turbo as well as the downpipe. They can even be used for other exhaust connections like the downpipe to front pipe.
Each kit includes 4, 8 or 11 studs depending on what flanges you would like to upgrade to Ti hardware.
The turbo and downpipe both take 4 studs, and the front pipe flange takes 3.
