So I was trying to change my gaskets on my borla replicas today and as I was trying to loosen one of the nuts the entire bolt came out with it. I then, stupidly, tried to use vice grips to get the nut off the bolt and stripped the bolt a little and now it won't go back in.

Anyone got any good solutions/ideas on how to fix this? my car sound terrible right now. Would the dealership have this piece?

thats what happened to me, minus the bolt being stripped. the dealership, or even home depot should have the same bolt and then screw it right back into the head and whatnot.

Mine come out too. I just put them back in like a bolt.

why did you try to take the bolt off anyway. theres studs in the heads so if the stud comes out with the bolt still on it than just use the stud/bolt and tighten it
