Hi all! I recently installed a new Borg Warner turbo on my 1.8T using all new hardware. The manifold to turbo bolts and turbo to catalyst studs keep coming loose. Any tips or tricks to stop that from happening? Thanks!

Place a dab of this onto the threads.

The one time use with built in washers works also. Then you also have options like Nord Lock washers. I personally use the Permatex muffler sealer on my BT app. Had issues of bolts backing off prior.

Doesn't matter if it's cross threaded, or torqued to spec, Tight is tight. [up]

Thanks, I'll give it a try.
