Help! Exhaust Stud Replacement/Torque on EJ-22
Posted 18 February 2005 - 10:03 AM
The car has 175K, I am working my way toward HG replacement. I was very lucky in that 4 of the 6 exhaust nuts came off with no problem - I was also lucky in that the other 2 nuts were stuck but the studs just unscrewed out (none breaking off inside!).
I know some recommend replacing all of the exhaust studs with new at this point, but I'm concerned about the possibility of the others breaking off inside in doing so, and am leaning towards just replacing these two with the rusted-on nuts.
Thanks for the advice!

if the studs are intack, i would (and often do) leave them in tact. maybe get a helicoil set just in case you wreck the threads. most threads get wrecked during insertion not removal though.
