Tore the engine bay apart During removal of the downpipe 5 studs broke off in the exhaust manifold, so I started into removing the exhaust manifold... I got the intake off with no issues and also got the top row of exhaust manifold nuts out no problem. I managed to destroy the two center nuts on the bottom row of studs. Going to take a dremel to the nuts and remove them to take my manifold off tomorrow. My brother is planning on dropping a spare 16v manifold off at our local machine shop to have the broken studs in that manifold removed. At least it should all go back together smoothly with brand new hardware, lol
