Exhaust Manifold Bolt Repair Kits

Save Time AND Money!

The objective of the
Exhaust Manifold Bolt Repair Bracket
is to stop exhaust leaks that occur 
between 
the exhaust manifold and the cylinder head 
on 1999 and newer model GM TRUCKS and SUV’s
with a 4.8, 5.3, 6.0 or 6.2 L. engine size.
The exhaust leak is caused by the 

end retaining bolts on the manifold 
breaking off inside the cylinder head.

Easy Installation!

The Exhaust Manifold Bolt Repair Bracket 
will repair the exhaust leak without having to 
remove the cylinder head or drill out and 
replace the broken end bolts!

Our brackets attach to the head using the
factory pre-drilled holes.  There is no drilling
involved with the installation of our parts.

Simply install the bracket 
and eliminate the exhaust leak. 

 It’s really that easy!

These brackets have been installed and tested on GM trucks and SUV’s since 2005.
They will not fail like the bolts do 
from heat and expansion of the manifold.
Each kit contains everything needed to easily repair any of the four broken corner exhaust manifold
bolts on either the driver’s side or the passenger’s side, front or rear corners.

The exhaust manifold bolt repair kits are designed to fit the corner bolts of the manifold.
However, we have had very good luck with these kits eliminating the exhaust leak when the bolt adjacent to the corner bolt is also broken.

Please note: the bracket in the video above has been modified to make installation easier by removing the bolt that wraps around the backside of the head
