So, THAT particular nut you've circled I had fall off on my 500 Abarth. Completely missing. I managed to replace it in situ, but left the stud. The studs had been replaced less than 5000 miles earlier while the engine was out. I wasn't about to pull the entire turbo (which is pretty difficult on the 500 Abarth) for one gd nut.
What product do you recommend then? I tried getting one for high temp, apparently not good enough!
Tried to order. He has a very weird checkout page. Says it will contact me with a PayPal request to calculate the shipping manually.
Use copper anti sieze on the threads. The anti sieze will smoke for a few minutes then crystallize. No more issues.This time it had threadlocker and is the third time it has fallen out. There are 4 studs/nuts in total that are on the bottom of the turbo.
Each nut is friggin $14! You can’t even buy the stud standalone. @Calehedron @sharkcohen , have you noticed anything special or different about these studs?
Please help me out with your vast hands-on knowledge.
Do they have stuffed turbos and performance manifolds? @GregI checked the studs on all three of the 1.4s that are here, none are loose or have fallen out. I was not able to talk to Bryan, but I did talk about it with some of my people here, and everyone has the same question.
How are you guys tightening the studs?
