Drill them out and replace them with M10 studs. BEGI is shipping all their manifolds like this now for a reason. I'm doing the same the next time my manifold is out of the car.

ETD Racing has offered to do a Group Buy on Greddy Manifolds.

$380 each + shipping based on 5 orders.

Anyone interested? Let me know and I can start a thread and arrange it for you.
