Manifold to turbo bolts take 3!

We have had a lot of problems with the manifold to turbo bolts coming loose or stretching..

The original ones that came with the Badger 5 hi-flow Manifold stretched under the excessive heat and load. So we tried some ARP Chromoly bolts which were much stronger. These came loose!

So now we are trying some titanium ones with lock wire..

The key is to not torque them up much at all to allow for the heat expansion..

Fingers crossed.. ( Didn't work!)

Solution : Marine Grade Stainless Steel with a longer shank and less threads!
