Ti Stud Kit - 18 Bolt

A permanent solution to corroded exhaust manifold retaining bolts for all water cooled Porsche. The standard retaining bolts can require a huge amount of work (and cost) to remove when changing manifolds or repairing blowing exhaust manifold gaskets. These kits were specifically designed for the 996, 997, 986 and 987 Porsche to completely resolve the issue of corroded bolts. If you have to go through the effort and cost of replacing seized manifold bolts or wish to prevent it becoming an issue in the future these kits provide a lifetime fix.


Each kit comprises of studs and washers machined from Ti6Al4V Titanium for excellent corrosion resistance along with motorsport specification cadmium plated self locking K-Nuts. The kits are a direct replacement for the OE exhaust manifold retaining bolt and require no modification to manifolds or cylinder heads.


If required we also provide hire of the fantastic Stomskl Jig Kit to help remove the original manifold bolts if they are damaged or heavily corroded.
