Okay, for the GC chassis RS, I've got a question regarding the exhaust. There's a bracket hanging just past where the cat ties into the midpipe, that has a nut wielded onto the back of the bracket, and one skinny bolt that goes through the metal arm of the cat, and through the bracket.

Somewhere in changing out my clutch I lost that bolt :bonk:, and simply can not find it, and I'm not confident that the zipties I've got in there wont just melt off. I would source it... but I have no idea what the thread size is...

So my question is this, Anyone know what the thread sizing is, or would anyone be willing to go and find out for me :help:? Thanks for any help in advance, it's greatly appreciatied :)

Personally I would just go to the hardware store and buy several in different thread pitches that look like they are the right size. Honestly bolts cost between a nickel and a buck fifty. Worst case scenario take them back for your money back or keep them as a stash. I stash mine personally.

That is by far not the most random question ever. The most random question ever would be like...

So I was making some pasta in my radiator with the hot coolant water, would it be better to warm up the sauce on the exhuast or should I just replace all the coolant with sauce to heat it up?

If it is any help though its prally a metric coarse thread nut

This is probably what I'll end up doing, I just thought if anyone had their exhaust off anyway, or was really-REALLY bored I might get lucky :lol:

Like rage said its going to be metric and it will prolly be 1.25 or 1.5 thread pitch. Then its a matter or getting the right diameter. I would say if you picked up 6 bolts you should be able to find the right one. Shouldn't be out more than 3 bucks or so.
