Stainless exhaust/turbo nuts


Recommended Posts

The nuts connecting my manifolds and exhaust system to the turbos are pretty rusty looking.  I'm going to be doing the spark plugs soon, so I'm thinking about replacing the nuts with new stainless ones while I'm under there.  The factory ones listed on ebay seem to be very expensive.  Does anyone know what size they are, or where I can get a set for a good price?

M8 and you do not have to go stainless, you can also use copper.  Be careful removing them, and soak them very well before attempting it so you do not break off the studs.


Good Luck.


Thanks.  I picked up some M8x1.25 copper locknuts on amazon.  I replaced a couple of them the other day.  I'm glad I'm doing it now, because the socket was pretty loose as the nuts rust away.  I think I'm going to buy a set of oxy/acetylene torches because the Propane wasn't really hot enough.
