Default ETD manifold -> turbo bolt thread pitch?

I had a bolt back out and I'm looking for a replacement, but for the life of me, I can't remember what the thread pitch is. Thanks for any help!

I will try and find out for you. I think they are closed until Wednesday due to our Canada Day public holiday, but I will try to give John a call in between working on my buddies vette and my round of golf.

I love long weekends, this one is extra long

Bryant Taylor: That's a good idea, why didn't I think of that? Oh yeah, cause it's Sunday and there aren't any hardware stores open. Thanks for the advice though ...

I'll take a shot in the dark and say 3/8 -16 (coarse) might work. That's what I have on my ETD manifold but it was custom built for a WRX flange.

Same as what BEGI and FM use. I am in the middle of installing my ETD mani now, took out the BEGI mani and the studs fit.

I believe my ETD is 8x1.25

it is, oddly, the same size as the ones that hold the frankenstein bolts.

If you trust the bolts sold there, then power to you. I wouldn't touch the bolts from any of those places just because the grades are so low.

higher grade bolts are more brittle. lower grade bolts are not as strong but are more ductile. you dont need grade 8.
