Default Where can I get this turbo hardware?

Sheared one of the studs in the turbo housing...it was installed cross-threaded somehow. I was hoping someone knows where I can source one?

I'm currently using the ones they sell at Advance and hate them. I pray I never have to take the turbo off ever again, but if I do, I'm calling Steph and having here send me about 20 of them.

Call Begi and have them send you 2 sets... that should be 18 total studs. 4xmani and 5xDP. That way you never have to worry about having them.

When you go to remove that stud, let it soak in PBBlaster or Liquid Wrench for a day or two. It should come out fine after that with a pair of vice grips.

Thanks everyone. Found some at a specialty fasteners store in town.

**** - how about this gasket?




All of this just to rotate the housing...sometimes this "fun" is a chore.

They're black in color and have a hex head on them.

The ones in the foreground? I dunno it should have said where you bought them from. grade 10.9 and heat treated for best results.

Poop. I'll call BEGI on Monday like SamNavy told me to do in the first place.

Should I replace ALL of them or can I re-use the ones still on the housing? I was wondering if they fatigue with the heat cycling. That would suck because this one was a bitch to remove as it was.
