TITANIUM TURBO MOUNTING BOLTS

It was asked if MTW would plan on carrying Titanium Turbo mounting bolts. This is NOT any "official" release whether MTW will or will not carry them. I think it is safe to say that we do like to listen to customers on what they would like to see offered. This is just a "feeler thread" to see what sort of response is out there. Other vendors do carry Ti Turbo bolts but we do like to offer alternatives and options. It is funny that this question came up because I had been doing some research in this area already to see what was out there.

Here are four pictures (kind of a sampling) of Titanium bolts that will work in mounting the turbo to your truck. These things are kind of expensive, but if people are interested we'll see what we can do. Titanium is some very strong and tough material that will not rust so it may be advantageous to some for this.

Titanium Grey


Titanium Blue


Titanium Gold


Titanium Purple Haze


Another material that I use almost exclusively on my truck whenever I replace a bolt or nut that is exposed to the environment is Stainless Steel. It doesn't have quite the "coolness" of Titanium but is still very strong, is highly corrosion resistant, and cheaper than Titanium.

We could do that.

I don't run any mounting bolts on mine. Never had a problem yet and makes turbo swaps that much faster since I am always pulling it for some reason.

Adrian only runs the back bolt to keep the turbo down from the jolt of when he is doing twenty car jumps in his white truck.

I like those Purple Haze bolts. Very cool looking. Or maybe it just a left over from my 60's memories.

I like them. I tend to hit up my Ace Hardware for stainless when I need one.
Everything I put back in gets some anti seize put on the threads. I've never had an issue doing that and I don't over torque stuff.
This seems like over kill in my opinion but for the right price I'd do it. If you've ever broke one in a bad spot they'd be we'll worth it!

I throw the front 2 in. Only takes a minute to take them out with a ratcheting wrench.

Wait.....how does the turbo stay in place of you don't bolt it in? Forgive me, I'm just a slow 7.3 guy....


I do like those blue and purple bolts though......
Could be nice to do something like that on exposed and open bolts that you could see.
