|yea i had was talking with a buddy of mine and he said he went with out getting a bolt out and he said it leaked and ended having to pull the head off and everything id rather not risk it and just get it pulled out for the 50 bucks|
i had this prob on my old mk1 gti. 178k mls
a friggn 4x4(peice of wood) fell off a trailer going down rt110 in ames.
ripped all the lower exh man bolts out of the head.
so i bought a header to replace the man. and we were in the process of drilling a retapping and we ended up poking into the water jacket on one of the bolts.
ended up sending it to centerline machine and i said f-it . they welded it up no prob, but while we were into it that much, i just rebuilt the whole thing,with a little port work.
but anyways some of those bolts are just way to close to thin walls and need to be done with care/ or cost you more $.
