A strong advice, do not use other than the stock studs mounting the downpipe.
They are far superior in quality and strength. Although they are pricey(if you
dont get the old ones off)its a pain in the ass when you break the
non-original and have to take off the turbo again and drill or weld a nut on
the remaining piece.
Usually I heat the housing and stud sherry hot and use double nuts if you dont
have the stud-tool. They are loctited from the factory and easily break if you
dont heat them.
