Re: Exhaust Manifold outlet threads

Unfortunately, on the A-4, the bolts holding this flange do not go all the way through. So you can't use a thru bolt. After looking at the flange on my engine, being that is is a very low stress point, I would imagine heli coils would work. I just always looked at heli coils as a temporary fix.
