          Heh, I recently discovered two of my driver's side manifold bolts were stripped. Upon inspection, one bolt was missing, and the other was just sitting on my heat shield. :evil: The worst thing is that I bought it this way, and have been driving it for 3 years like that. I knew my Z sounded wierd, damned exaust leak, it's probably how it passed smog hahahaha.
