    Do you need to get new bolts when removing the turbo or manifolds?

    I am going to install a new catless up pipe in my 2004 wrx. I am replacing the exhaust manifold gaskets and the gasket from the turbo to the down pipe because they bother seem to be leaking. I was wondering if I will need to buy new bolts for the turbo or the manifolds? if so what bolts are they? I am just trying to get everything I might need before I start working on this in like 2 weeks.

    You shouldn't need them. With that said...

    Do you have the ability to have downtime in the case that you damage hardware? If not, plan ahead and buy them.

    ok cool, I will have extra time after I take off the turbo So i can order some if I need to. No need to spend money I don't need to.
