Does anyone have experience with the exhaust studs from the Fiero Store? I'm in the process of dropping the cradle to replace several broken exhaust studs.

Thanks in advance for your feedback.

I realize that I could purchase manifold studs from my local auto parts establishments, but when pricing is comparable I endeavor to support the Fiero community.

Thanks Tony for your reply.

Cajun,
I have to do the same with one of mine.
Would you mind posting how long it took you to drop it and what other things you are going to do while its out ?
Remember, take pics too.

Thanks.

Honestly for $15 you really are not really losing anything. I plan on getting mine from there as well. They look good to me. Studs are better than bolts for sure.

I dont think anyone took it that way. I, just like you, like to shop locally for convenience sake. However when someone else does all the brain work for me sometimes I just like to be lazy.

robert1234,

As requested I will start a new thread in the Technical section to document work and progress.

This will not be a speedy job as I plan to take my time to ensure that everything that needs to be addressed is done so while the cradle and engine are out.

Just curious... If you plan to drop the engine/cradle to do this job, why would you use studs? To me, studs only have an advantage when installing on the engine when it is in the car because with the studs in place you can hang the gasket(s) on the studs, put the manifold in position and then put the nuts on to tighten everything. If you are pulling the cradle and are going to do the job with the cradle out, I would use ARP stainless bolts/screws.

A bolt/screw has only one potential for coming loose. A stud + nut combo has two potentials for coming loose.

For next time probably. Plus penetrating oil works better on them.
