    Broken exhaust manifold bolt !!! Need help!!

    Ok so I Installed some pacesetter ceramic coated longtube headers and high flow cats with 3in Y. During the install the passenger side header bolt nearest to the firewall broke flush with the engine. We continued with the install and installed everything else fine. Everything fit etc. We used new metal gaskets. Bolts where tightened and everything was done right.

    Just wondering if the broken bolt would cause any problems. Headers looked good on both sides , got a good seal. So is evrything gonna be fine? I didn't see any smoke coming from the headers or exhaust fumes.....

    Any advice, opinions, experience , input would be appreciated !!!!!

    If it were me Id be a lil worried about a missing bolt on the end. I wouldnt worry as much if it was one in the middle but with it being on the edge like that I personally would probably put in the extra effort in getting the broken one out and putting a new bolt in there but if its def not leaking and youre ok with it then just keep a close eye on it.

    BTW... Im missing one in the very middle on my pass side because the hole didnt line up right and its been fine for years. I kept saying i was gonna fix it but eventually I just was fine with it since it never leaked and still hasent.
