    I had never trusted those thread coil repair kits before, and I used one once and it was a sham.

    Now, my exhaust manifold completely fell off my 4Runner, and I need to get these bolts back in. So I need to buy 12 of the f*ckers and go to work.


    Anyone got any tips? Preferred brands ?

    The guys in my old machine shop were willing to trust $50k pieces of equipment to helicoils, so I think they'll work fine for you. :)
