Exhaust manifold studs

Mine are EFFED. Stripped out bad on one side because I got impatient roid rage with my impact one day. I had to get the exhaust on before my dad got home and tore me a new A-hole for having my manly car in his pristine yuppy garage, and I wound up messing up my exhaust manifold studs that I bolt the H pipe onto.

So.. I am thinking I could make some sort of flange that just mounts behind the current exhaust manifold flange/stud area and also get a new flange that mounts behind the H pipe flange and just presses the pipe onto the manifold without even using the stock studs. Are there any products that can achieve this?

New manifold is out of the question.

Are you talking like the studs on the exhaust manifold you connect the x or h pipe too?

I had this issue today as well. My friend suggested vice grips or putting 2 nuts on and un screwing it from the first nut.

I suggest you put down tools and never touch another car. They make excellent bicycles these days that require almost no maintenance.

Try using a smaller size socket and tap it on. Preferably a 12 tooth socket.

Yeah because everybody knows that if you get impatient and cross thread 1 nut in your life, then you are a terrible mechanic. Lol.


The **** was rusty and I was rushing through it as well as being in a bad mood from the start of the project. So yeah it was one of those times when im twice as likely fo EFF it up.

No, the stud is stripped. IM going to just bypass the whole stock stud/flange and bolt my own flanges onto the pipe&manifold using 100% brand new flanges, bolts, and nuts.

Yeah that would work too but it would be a huge pain trying to get the stud out of the rust. I also don't have much threading on the stud

If you have access to a tap and die set, you can either try to clean up the existing threads and use a brand new nut, or, possibly, cut some new threads that are a slightly smaller diameter.

I have this same problem with the catalytic converter on my trucks. Some of the studs look almost completely smooth but once I get the nut started, and down to the spot on the stud where it has been for the last 25 years, it grabs, and can be tightened down.
