ok the car will idle a little rough, but will smooth out, then as soon as you start to drive it when its about to hit boost it starts to shutter hard and you have to shift. and i can seem to find any vaccum leaks, and its not throwing any usefull engine codes as all anymore...

Where are the threads located?

What threads/bolts?

If they're exhaust manifold bolts or something like that, you can drill out the threads and put some Heli coils in. Exhaust manifold threads are 10 x 1.25.
