SpeedFactory Racing designed this kit specifically for K-series motors as a cost effective alternative to its titanium counterparts. This kit gives many of the same benefits, primarily a fresh set of hardware, at the expense of a few extra grams. A hex on one end allows for easy installation with an Allen wrench.
This stainless steel hardware is significantly stronger than the OEM material while being resistant to corrosion and rust. Often times studs will take a beating when fitting or removing the exhaust manifold, especially if performed with the engine in-car. Stainless steel hardware can withstand greater abuse without deforming threads, in addition, the lack of rust buildup will make it easy to service the exhaust when needed – a big plus for those living in harsh climates.
The kit comes with stainless steel nuts and washers that provide excellent clamping force, allowing the exhaust manifold to be properly torqued to the cylinder head for a leak-free operation – a must for turbocharged applications.
