Hey Guys,

I'm pretty new to the mod thing so half the stuff will probably sound wrong so work with me here. I've got as 2013 VT A/T, with a Magnaflow catback and a Turbosocks CAI. I recently purchased an 845 Catless downpipe, and tried to install it with a friend of mine who knows far more about cars myself. We got the stock cat off fine, only to find that we needed to also remove the elbow(?) from the cat to the turbo itself. This is where we found that the two bolts contained rust, but tried to get the nuts of anyway. Long story short, the bolt snapped clear off and disappeared. We didn't want to go along with the install because if the 2nd bolt came off, I'd be riding around with nothing until we got it resolved. I guess what I need to know is what size that bolt is so I can purchase another one. ANy help is highly appreciated!!! :eagerness::eagerness::eagerness:

You definitely will have to soak those bolts in some form of penetrant for least an hour for any kind of easement getting them off lol! I would use PB Blaster or Wd-40 or the like. Pb Blaster is some great stuff, I've knocked ball joints across the room that were stuck with that stuff soaked in it. Far as the bolt size, i'm unsure of that. Hopefully someone can add to that for you so you can replace it. I would just call your local dealership and ask if they have any in stock and find out the thread pitch :)

Would this be the bolt with spring your talking about?

Wow, didn't know that there was a DP that was that high up. I have Pierces Catless so that's why i was confused.
Technically the Pierce Pipes are Test Pipes.

A Down pipe goes from Turbo to exhaust.

The dyno sheets that got posted showed a 2-3hp difference so not a huge deal, but to some it is.

thanks for the open arm welcome :smile:
i opted for the 845 dp because people on the forum seemed to like his stuff. i was unaware that it replaced both the stock dp and the elbow, but it does make it a full turbo back exhaust then if that sounds right? just not sure of the size of that bolt itself.

i would imagine so. again, i apologize for my ignorance in what I'm talking about, but the actual stud that we were trying to screw the nut off of fell clear off.

WD40 is not really a penetrant, it's s lubricant and water displacer (hence the WD). PB Blaster is definitely the way to go.

little tricky to tell from this diagram, but I'd like to say that you're more than likely correct. would that be where part #4 from diagram 1 meets part #3 in diagram 2?
