SubOperator Posted July 11, 2017 Share Posted July 11, 2017 The thread in the EJ253 head where header stud is screwed in got stripped at some point (I blame dealer while installing Tribeca's FSB). They used some regular bolt instead of OEM stud+nut for the header. I got the engine rebuilt recently and found this during the rebuild. OEM stud is no longer able to stay in the engine head. I've heard that helicoil is one of the solutions for stripped threads. Did anyone use that for similar problem? Is there a different proven solution to this issue? 2005 LGT Wagon Limited 6 MT RBP Stage 2 - 244K 2007 B9 Tribeca Limited DGM - 243K SOLD - 2005 OB Limited 5 MT Silver - 245K SOLD - 2010 OB 6 MT Silver - 205K Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
