fwiw - I used nordlock washers (from fastenal) on my new turbo install and reassembly and they haven't budged. I have no idea why that fastenal was so expensive. I paid .88 for the 8s and 1.09 for the 10s. You can also order the same design washer from McMaster- believe it's called a stepped locking washer. Are the copper nuts reusable?

hustler: AUDI DEALERSHIP. walk in. say you want 8x1.25 turbo nuts. haggle. walk out with deal-boner.

I think the coppers are reusable. at least a couple times. I have. btw, I did replace my studs at one point which may help the loosening issue. in any case, I love my stud install/removal tool.

I'm assuming the nuts are copper coated - correct? Does the copper act like a high temp thread locker?

they won't fit and don't stock the 10mm ones.

sure, let me know. I'm going to try these first on y8s' recommendation, then try safeywire washers.

I might just order both, just in case.

Great find for cheap. Hopefully that place doesn't rape you on shipping. I'll definitely archive that link.

Note: The M10 ones are the wrong pitch for the miata exhaust studs.
Ask me how I found out....
