I’ve used helicoils for this purpose, along with exhaust manifold studs and rocker bolts. A selection here search.php?keywords=Helicoil+&t=17113&sf=msgonly

If you scroll down the photos of the red engine, you can just about make out a helicoil in the turbo to exhaust manifold flange.

Good day all

and thanks for the options - i guess Helicoil is the way forward and doing all four would make sense now - for the studs would using M8 SS bolts suffice, cut to a suitable length with spring washers - or are these exhausts studs a different specification ?

Have a look on eBay. You can buy them in the correct material from quite a few of the specialist sellers (Conceptua are usually very good). Search “turbo studs” or something similar, and buy tri-lock nuts if you can find them as they generally don’t come undone.

Exhaust/turbo studs generally have a plain shank in the middle - for the mating part to sit (and locate to a degree) onto. Also generally made from better material to boot.

Good day all,

well i handed my manifold to my MOT garage friend and did say i would like the studs removed and holes Helicoiled- 'we will sort something out....'
...

Image

Drilled deeper and re-tapped...oh well!

They dropped it off my my wife's workplace and did not charge me .... - i sometimes do wonder if too friendly with a single garage is not always a good thing!!

Should be ok if you can widen the holes in the turbo. You may find it difficult to get a nut onto the back studs though. So a thin wall nut or two may be required.

the (replaced) stud is the same size...it was just a tad longer - so all should fit together without widening the holes? ...on Sunday ..hopefully
