I thought (most probably wrong) that SS studs on an alu head was a bad idea due to galvanic corrosion, negating the SS advantage over standard studs/bolts. Doesn't someone on here produce affordable (as much as they can be) titanium versions?

Have you not read the previous comments in this thread. Titanium is worse than Stainless with regards to attacking Aluminium.

Hands-up. I didn't read the whole thread. 17 years on the forum and 42 posts for a reason Smile

SS is still better than standard ones then?

The bolts corrode where they go through the exhaust manifold an gasket, on the Porsche OEM manifold it’s a mild steel and stainless sandwich which itself corrodes around the mounting holes and makes the bolts rust just under the head, hence why the steel ones shear off.

The other issue is the bolt heads disappear over time so you round them off when you put a socket.

The only advantage is that steel is easier to drill out than stainless or titanium

I’ll be tackling mine this year! With dread!! I’m planning on using an induction tool but thinking I’ll need to drill also, can you hire the jig? Also, regarding bolts I was planning studs and brass nuts which I’ve used lots of times, admittedly on motorcycles, is this not recommended for these?

Once the task is complete the jig is probably surplus to requirements Wink

I have also been keeping my eyes open for one for a while now, so if you do sell I'd be interested
