Default Hardware for EFR6258

It's getting closer and closer, ARTech is almost complete my manifold, after which it will get sent to Swaintech for a White Lightning coating. This will be a top mount equal length setup similar to 99mx5 from miataforumz using an identical manifold.

I need to attach the turbo to the manifold and that's where my problems arise. Do I use Inconel? I feel the locking hardware wont fit on the one stud because the EFR has very little room around one hole. I don't know any alternatives, can you suggest them? I hear using standard studs is a hit or miss, but Abe DOES sell a kit with A36 studs. I got time, just need to make sure I get the right parts. Thanks!

The Stage8 nut fits but the lock does not....ask me how I know.....lol

I have an extra Inconel kit if you decide to go that route let me know. That is what I plan to use, but will leave the lock off that one stud.

I use the inconel studs kit that Abe has. I used resbond on the studs and the nuts and installed the locks on three of the four studs. so far so good.

I plan on using the oem nissan 300zx tt manifold to turbo studs. 1 stud you have to put the long side into the manifold or it hits the turbine housing. I plan to use copper lock nuts like come standard on rx7tts amoung others. The studs and nuts are 8x1.25, I have flanged and non flanged nuts because I'd like to use the flanged but arent sure if they'll fit.

You can't lose with Abe, and his kit includes Resbond.
