I drilled out one of the studs but it wasn't exactly in the centre. It was very time consuming. I am sure I would have had to slot the wastegate holes on the headers to get it to fit again. I just thought WTH I have spent thousands anyway... At least I know that I could have fixed it up if I really wanted too. I would have used stainless studding just like the rest I have changed on the car if needed.
