For those dealing with stretched studs only: Do you have a cast iron manifold with a vertical flange?

If you don't have this issue, don't vote.

I have the regular BEGI manifold. I know a guy with a HKS manifold at 45*-ish that has no issues and he's faster than me. Don't know _his_ stud material, neither does he as it came pre-assembled.

As before, my tilted non-cast setup has no issues.

I propose a dowel pin solution for vertical people. Dowel pin between each stud. Then you have 4 dowels holding the main stress with turbo and manifold. Weight is all supported by them. Studs/bolts/nuts are just holding them together. It does the job holding the head and bottom end together.... (different materials and bolts i know... but still :P )

I concur.


I've tried to stay out of these threads...and when I do get in I'm largely ignored. I don't have the problem...but can only offer an educated perspective on it.

What does verticle mean? Top, bottom, or side mount clarification needed.
