Re: Exhaust Manifold outlet threads

Another option would be to get a tap and die set (always good to have) and re tap the threads to a slightly larger size. I'm thinking metric. That way the fix is permanent. The only thing you have to watch is the thickness of the material you are tapping. I have always been hesitant to use heli coils on things like exhaust manifold, intake, head or high stress bolts. FWIW. AR
