Exaust Manifold Studs


Recommended Posts

G'day guys, I've got a new turbo with manifold and dump ready to go onto my rb20, and upon inspecting my old manifold I noticed atleast 2 studs that have snapped, I figure if 2 need to be replaced the might as well do them all, my question is if u guys have anywhere to recommend to get this done? And at the same time put on the new turbo.

Cheers in advance - Trent

Thanks for that mate, I'm looking for someone to do the studs and the turbo all in the one hit tho. This would be good tho if I do end up doing the turbo swap myself,

Cheers- Trent

If you do the install your self then the thread doctor is the man to use, i used him not long ago, great service!

Any work shop should be able to to do the job, if everything you have is just bolt on then its pretty simple stuff.

+1 for thread doctor.

really good and comes to you.

im using Stainless Steel studs. not many people like them as they reckon they bind, but my turbo has been off plenty of times without any issues at all.

    • TCU is enroute, should be here on Monday. Have just paid for a transmission locally, they've got to pull it out of the car and should be with me on Friday. Just getting little bits and pieces I need for wiring. Thinking about using a small bulkhead connector to run the transmission wiring through the tunnel as the trans plug is quite big.  So all going well i should have the box dummy fitted up next weekend and start wiring.
    • sure, just PM me your email....
    • Haha likewise, take my shit box for a spin and maybe you'll end up wanting a R33 shit box again lol...  
    • @Jasoncauser looks like a tight technical track, and definitely fun! Let's hope I make it to that day 😎  
    • The springs just lets the valve bleed off pressure/oil and it bypasses the feed gallery and heads back to where the pickup feed is On the LS the oil gets the the bearings...eventually  This vid explains the OEM pump well IRT the pressure release valve and how the bypass works The oil pressure light coming on intamitantly could just be a sticky valve, but, why pull something apart and not put something better in  I believe the low oil pressure light comes on somewhere between 5-10 psi Well will stick a gauge in after the installation to see what difference it makes at hot idle and higher RPM, and by high RPM I mean 6300 RPM.....LOL
