Greetings Loren.

I have a question that i hope maybe you can help me with.

The issue is that on my car, 996 c2 01. i had to remove broke bolts from my exhaust manifoil when i changed the meaders.

The result of that was that i hd to try to drill out the rest of the bolts. the drilling went pretty ok but some of them i had to drill out became with m10 threads and not m8 as they are orginal.

One of the m10 threadet blots i was unlucky to drill to far into the manifoil and went trought :-(

so i have a problem to keep the oil from leaking out,becourse the bolt torqued on wont keep it tight.

So i have been thinking about a solution regarding this issue, ofcourse i can take the car to a Porsche workshop and change the whole exhaust manifoil-blok but that cost's a fortune here in Norway.

Do you have any other idea's how to repair this issue ?

Is there a cance to fill the tapped m10 hole with high-temp epoxy putty (1000 degree C) after cleaning the hole with electro cleaner to clean the surface inside.

Then drill and tapp it to m8 and 25 mm deep.

Let me know what you think.

Thanks :-)

Best regards

Michael Berger.

A big thanks for helping me with so many projects on my car. I don't know what the 996 community would do without you.
