BMW Exhaust Gaskets Hangers and Parts
BMW E34 Exhaust Gaskets Hangers and Parts
Exhaust systems are typically split among multiple sections and each section has its own form of fasteners and attachment points. The gaskets, hangers, and seals that join each section together should be replaced any time the exhaust is removed. As the exhaust is tightened together the gaskets and seals are crushed or deformed to form a tight seal. Re-using them is possible but greatly opens up the potential for an exhaust leak. Exhaust leaks can lead to a number of major and minor problems including power loss, check engine faults, and noise issues. Replacing your hangers and gaskets will ensure you don't have to take the exhaust down all over again.
This convenient kit includes all the hardware you need to replace your old, rusted (or broken?) exhaust manifold studs on your M50-family engine's head (including M50, M52, S50, S52). The perfect time to preventatively replace your exhaust studs is anytime you remove the manifolds (perhaps to install headers) or are removing the head or complete engine. Kit includes the correct number of OEM studs, copper locking nuts, and also includes two jam-nuts to be used for removing your old studs and installing the new studs. This stud and nut kit Fits 325i, 325is, 328i, 328is, 323is, E36 M3 (3.0 & 3.2 liter), E34 525i (91+), E39 528i, Z3 2.8.

These studs will save the day! Stripped or corroded exhaust manifold studs are a major pain to deal with. Rusted studs fuse themselves to the nuts and back out of the cylinder head. These are M6x35 stainless exhaust manifold studs with new copper nuts that will make your manifold install a breeze! These are a best seller for the E30 M3 and we put together a similar kit for the S38 in the E34 M5 (earlier M88/S38 use a different length stud). These studs have an internal 3mm hex so no more "double-nutting" or stud installers are needed, so no more galling threads!
With years of experience with dealing with exhaust systems of all kinds, we've found this product to be the BEST at fixing or preventing exhaust leaks. Just apply a light coating of Acousti/seal to pipes, flanges or slip-fit clamps before assembly for a leak free installation. 5 ounce tube (142 grams).

Have an M50/S50 or M52/S52 engine that you need to put in storage? These handy block-off plates seal off each manifold outlet to keep dust, debris, and even creatures from sneaking in through the exhaust. Don't bother with cardboard or shop rags - they won't seal well and will deterioriate after time. These extra-thick plastic caps are the best semi-permanent solution to sealing your engine for long term storage. Pre-drilled holes fit over the stock exhaust studs and use standard exhaust nuts or a regular hex nut.
