    They do that with engine internals too LOL

    Someone once asked me if they could use my mower. I said "sure, so long as it doesn't leave my yard"

      Pretty sure it's just deformed nuts. They wear out with each use, stick fresh ones on and torque to spec, job done.

          Its a modified car thing, I do shitloads of turbos and use regular looking nuts and washers and they dont come loose, leak or fall off. Nip em again after a heat cycle and send the cunt.
          If your really paranoid buy copper plated exhaust nuts, you dont need inconel nuts/studs and fucking nord locks

            Everyone on Miataturbo.net swears by the incolnel studs and Stage 8 fasteners. I'll be going down that path when I upgrade from the factory turbo gear, as I've already had issues with nuts coming loose when pushing my car on track. Do it once and do it properly.

              Yeah, thats what im thinking. Also vaguely considering just splashing out for a Kraken manifold that comes with the inconel studs and stage 8 fasteners, especially if they turn out to be required anyway it brings the total cost of the manifold down.

                Looks like they will be fun to remove after being in place for a few years.
                I can see the tops shearing right off them.
