you can also tap out the holes wit a starter tap and a bottoming tap
7/16 14 thread. 7/17 dia. and 14 threads per inch

If it breaks you can drill out the bolt and use a heli-coil kit.

it must be an odd stud, or it must be a same-side head as the other head, its the only one i have seen like that, it was that way when we got it
the turbo cross-pipe has the studs opposite that of a regular pipe

Miles, yes, the other holes do get used by the adapter for the ASV and the turbo cross over pipe. They are not used by the stock y-pipe.

usually the nut will turn so far befare it catches all the rust and begins to take the stud with it.
if the studs DO come out, get new ones. to install them, thread 2 nuts on the END, lock them together. then use the nut farthest on the end with a wrench to turn the stud in. then use 2 wrenches to unlock the nuts,and then proceed to install the gasket and pipe.
the thread locker will prevent the stud from coming out the next time, and the anti-seize will let the nut come off before it wants to take the stud with it.
but sometimes a rusty stud will take the aluinum thread wit it, tearing it out as it goes. if you see aluminum on the stud if it comes out, re-tap it with 7/16 and use 7/16 stud, or helicoil it like qman said

a lot of times people who are driving them are driving them just because its a car, and could care less that its a subaru.
maybe it would be wise to find cheap cars and fix them up, and just trade them even up for soobs.
