Default going to do install the stage 8 hardware this week. what nut for turbo downpipe

I need new turbo downpipe hardware. I think the FM kit uses m8 x 1.25 but I'm not sure.

I was looking at the 034 motorsports, also an Audi guy, and not sure if I need something fancy or if the copper one is fine for turbo downpipe? also going to order resbond so I dont kick myself for not doing everything possible to do it right once.

any thoughts would be helpful. is the stud a 8mm for the FM kit or is it 10mm?

also any recommendations for a inexpensive heat, fire sleeve for the heater coolant lines? the wrap looks ratty to me and would like to find a sleeve of some kind that is not stupid expensive

All downpipe studs are M8x1.25. Obviously a Stage 8 and Resbond is ideal, but if you can't fit a Stage 8 I would go with a VWAG-style copper locking nut and Resbond.

I use Honda Flywheel bolts on my downpipes. The head on them is a lot smaller (10mm 12point) so they are better in awkward places and they are very very strong.
