uppipe turbo flange bolts

Alright, on the stock uppipe, there are bolts sticking out of the pipe in both directions with just threads, which connects to the turbo (See pic). On the aftermarket uppipe I got, there are no such bolts...BUT there are threads for the bolts that are present on the stock pipe. How do I get these out and use them on the new uppipe???? Here are pics of the stock pipe and the helix pipe I have.

I just used some quality grade bolts from Home Depot. That is most likely your best bet.

As far as using the old bolts you don't use the old ones. I believe the old ones are pressed and or welded in. Just buy some grade 8 bolts from Lowes or Home Depot. As with any exhaust bolts I always try to put some copper flake on the bolts if you ever plan on taking them off again.

Do NOT bump threads. This is your first and last warning.

My car is well, it's like 10 lbs of shit in a 5 lb bag...

I those are studs not bolts. But if your UP isn't threaded for them, then you can use some good grade 8 bolts that are the same size. If it IS threaded for them, then you need studs.

ok i figured it out...the stock uppipe bolts are just threaded in. I simply tightened to nuts against each other on one side of the bolt and once those were secure, I screwed the bolt right out. After this I think I could make a better installation guide than the one Ive been using...
