HELP overpipe stud snapped

So I was attempting to put my Invidia front pipe on and one of the studs on the stock over pipe snapped off. Obviously I have an exhaust leak and even if I did I still need this fixed.. Is it possible for a exhaust shop to thread a new stud in or do I need a new over pipe? Also how hard is a overripe compared to cutback install

First of all you should bring this to the exhaust section...

Can you be a bit more specific as to how it snapped? Did the head get sheered off, body broken in half? Is anything stuck? And please tell me you used penetrating fluid before trying to torque it.

An exhaust shop will definitely be able to help you. If it's just a stud replacement then that'll be easy for them.

All the exhaust pipes are bolted on, so it's basically just a matter of screwing them off and putting the new ones on. Overpipe should be easier than catback since it's one relatively small piece besides multiple large ones. And with an overpipe you only need to lift the front up. Can't say from experience though cause I still have the stock overpipe.

Studs are easily replaced.

New ones are available. I got one of these when I broke my stock ones a while back:

1) take it to an exhaust shop and they can fix it.

2) it isnt harder per se it just takes more time as you have to angle it in. If you dont feel comfortable doing it yourself then see #1

No one else had to take the passenger side motor mount off and lift the motor to change the overpipe out?

Couple of weeks ago I was trying to change out the front pipe, one of the nuts wouldn't come off of the stud because the threading was so fucked. Couldn't get it off, couldn't get it torqued back on. Had to drive with a leak for a few days until I got a replacement overpipe and just sawed into the nut. Huge pain in the ass.

I think its a great excuse to get an aftermarket overpipe, the stock overpipe is a restriction anyway.

Easiest way is to remove heat shield and then remove stock overpipe.

Next easiest way is to get an aftermarket overpipe and have it coated to prevent radiating heat, same functionality as stock.

No one will give you any emissions crap for an aftermarket overpipe.

Biggest reason for the hold up was that I didn't have a replacement overpipe at the time I had the trouble changing out my frontpipe. Ended up wrapping it with DEI wrap. Unrelated but somewhat on topic, I was gifted a Tsudo overpipe by a friend of mine. At $60.00 shipped it is far and away the cheapest overpipe for this car which made me very skeptical. I was very pleasantly surprised at the quality of welds and flanges, and fitment. Anxious to see how it holds up over time.
