I did take one of the bolts off from the correct side last night. I'll pick up some brass ones at Ace today.

I'm amazed that I haven't noticed this before! I've had the car for almost a year and have put on nearly 5000 miles!

Just wanted to thank you guys.

Thanks

Shaun

Shaun,

Brass is a great idea for these areas that are exposed to the elevated temperatures and corrosive elements (exhaust). I would also go get some brass washers and bronze split lock washers. I too cooncur with using a buttload of anti-sieze compound (most autparts stores sell this stuff) on all of those components. Breaking off a stud on your exhaust manifolds can really ruin your day/weekend.
Also, but enough parts to do both sides while you are in there. You may also want to replace the exahust donuts sine you are in there (oh, here I go again....)

Good luck...

I think that the manifold carries a 7/16" NC stud
