Default F00-king turbo nuts/studs ain't coming out anymore!

After having trouble after trouble after trouble with turbo nuts and studs coming loose, i've decided to fix this prob once and for all... Not only did I resbond the studs and nuts, but I also tack welded the studs to the manifold, and tack welded the nuts to the studs. My guess is if the resbond fails to hold it in place, then the tack weld will

If I am welding awaiting my v-band setup, I am welding it all together. All the way round that is.

This is possibly the funniest and worst thread of all time. Only time will tell. Welding manifold to housing would be so much better tbh.
Pics please.

You guys should all use 7/6" studs in a manifold tapped for m10. That's my secret trick.

Those areas work under heat and will crack in no time according to the guy at OTS. This is the best option.

Now come on, you say the studs will stretch and the turbo flanges will leak?

Why is this not a problem on Mazdaspeed miatas from the factory. Their nuts never come loose...
