Dropped Evo off to CBRD for a stripped stud hole on cylinder head to exhaust manifold and might as well install turbosmart wastegate onto my bbk full and retune and add a flex section to my downpipe while Iím on vacation.

I was on the phone yesterday with the STM sales desk and I said, "My car is 15 years old and I think I might need throttle seals." Reaction from STM, "You think?"

Got home from work and saw my stripped manifold stud and itís stripped inside the cylinder head but it wonít stay tight and wonít get tight fml.. red loctite is not working. Any recommendations? Heli coil , time-sert, new head? Ugh

i just tightened this as tight as I could get it and it looked like this after a 30 min ride home.

I would heli-coil first. That should hold fine, if it fails, you could always JB weld it in

My fifteen year old Evo got its first boost leak test today. The result - one leak, #2 injector. Fifteen year old throttle seals, which I bought replacements for ahead of time, not leaking. Plastic BOV, not leaking.

Both Evos I have owned, same thing. No throttle leaks, no BOV leaks. Original seals at 180k and 30+psi.

Every Evo I haven't owned, but boost tested (3), super huge leaks at the throttle. lol

Nice job on the repair of that stripped stud hole. That is how I would have done it. Hopefully that nut stays tight for you as the thermal expansion coefficient for cast aluminum and steel are different. I think it should be fine.
