So....did Porsche intentionally use bolts that would strip out when ever you try....

...to remove them or is it just a bonus with owning the car? I mean...what the ****?! I don't believe I've turn one bult under the car, especially on the exhaust, that hasn't stripped the threads, broken, or rounded the head. I'm never buying a northern car EVER again...


...unless the next one I want in is a northern state...

PB Blaster is your friend.

Exhaust nuts and bolts corrode - high heat + moisture = corrosion.

Use copper clad nuts and lots of anti-sieze when you put it all together.

Mackenzie...I know what you mean...I replaced a CAT and headers on an 88 944na and had to soak the Sh$#@ out of them with WD40, Liquid Wrench, you name it in order for them to come off...

I fixed my problem by unbolting the the entire header and breaking the heads off with a bolt-cutter. Worked great. I've decided that if I, for whatever reason, have to do this again I'll just buy another car.

Stainless steel high-strength bolts & anti-sieze at reassembly time. 'nuff said.

I had to remove almost all my exhaust bolts with a cutoff wheel. When I reinstalled it, I used stainless bolts and never-sieze( figured its gonna have to come out again evetually!)
I think Porsche purposley uses softer metals on the heads of thier bolts so u have to buy new ones.

Like Juvat said, PB Blaster is your friend! That stuff is the best.

Wow, i'm kind of surprised. The exhuast system bolts on my car (a northern car) have all come apart just fine. I was rather surprised, because i've never had exhuast bolts actually come apart on any previous (non-Porsche) cars. I've ALWAYS had to cut them. I was able to unthread exhuast manifold nuts with my fingers (on a 160K mile car!)

I was happy with the strength of the bolts on my flange. All but 2 of the bolts simply snapped, and I popped them through with a punch. They took less time than taking the nut off the bolt would have. The other 2 I had to cut.
