Which exhaust manifold to head stud kit

As above, what would anyone recommend for the stud and nut kit for the exhaust manifold to head. Ideally something that won't rust that's a reasonable price. Have seen the ross sport ones but didn't want to really spend £150 on less than ten studs and nuts. Cheers

Something from ebay

https://www.ebay.co.uk/i/36197008077...SABEgKC__D_BwE

They may/will rust, but at the price

Remember to put sealant on the head thread, there are oil ways in the head

I've seen the cheap ones on eBay. I was hoping that someone would have a decent set they have used for cheaper. Tbh I'll probably end up just buying the ross sport ones.

Only other one I have seen is with item number 273364705648
What are your thoughts?

as much as it pains me to say it, the items ross sport have are probably worth investing in over the poor qua;ity ebay stuff. albeit at 150 notes for some studs and nuts though, its extortionate to say the least

I've used nuts and studs from Bresco before, very well priced and good quality.

https://www.bresco.com/acatalog/Exha..._Hardware.html

From the looks of that eBay listing they've used the same nuts, the copper and Brass Tri-lock ones are good, not had one loosen on me yet.

Nooooo careful guys with the cheap ebay stuff. I got them, and they were too short! They barely fitted, but I will scrap them once I have the manifold removed again.

I quoted the mamba ones above. They seem the same as the rest for half the price but never really had any dealing with mamba as a brand?

Do you have the ones listed in the post below from eBay? They look good, £50, cheaper than ross sport ones too.

https://redirect.viglink.com/?format...%257Ciid%253A1

On another night what paint marker is used for marking bolts so they can be checked to see if they have backed off? Acrylic paint marker or?

Cheers for all the responses guys!

What are the stock lengths and threads for the studs and bolts?

Aren't Mamba the turbo guys on Ebay? Never dealt with them myself.
The studs I have are from Ross, looked identical to the ARP ones but were a bit cheaper. Sadly it looks like exchange rates and inflation have taken their toll as I'm sure paid around £110, not £138. They still look like this now, not a rusty mess, after 3+ years on the car.
OE studs are £47 so you pay your money and makes your choice- just keep in mind that if one of the cheaper Mamba stainless ones snap, you'll have a nightmare removing the remains.
That said, there is a chance they ARE the same quality material, one way to find out!

Company from SE Asia, do lots of tuning parts.

Probably the higher end of eBay stuff if you get my drift?
