4 of my exhaust man bolt holes are stripped on the head ..2 are helicoiled alreadys. I've tried lock tight to see if the woud lock in again but epic fail.

My gf recomended gorilla glue !! I laugh... but the shit could be used to put a building back to gether. I've used it befor and its never faild. But for this its in the exhaust system and under gos extream heat, durr, and the way it cures up is like a Really hard foam. Or appears that way. For as stupied as it sounds.. dose anyone think it could hold to the heat? I'm in a deperate need of a fix with out pulling the head and having it machined.

or dose anyone know whats size the studs are ?? i think they might be M8x 1.25 but im not sure .. because if the gule bs wont help i was thinking of going up a bolt size and re-helicoil??

Dude, some people should slap you for saying that! Jk. I don't know about the G glue. Number 1 it probably won't hold, just a hunch? Number 2 It's right and right to due it right. If it is turbo then, you might have some problems driving it. If not take the car to a local machine shop and have them helicoil all the bolt holes and walah! BTW: the thread size should all be the same. So, if you have one bolt then, there you go. Peace and Good Luck Solider!
