Well, your dealer is unknowledgeable to say the least (there's better words for them). I just had the drivers side done where 2 had sheared off. So my mechanic removed the manifold with the remaining studs/nuts and extracted the 2 that were sheared. He replaced the studs with higher grade ones. You can call Langford auto repair in Lebanon KY and ask Brock for the grade of studs just used on Richmond's 05 HEMI. If I'm not mistaken, they welded a nut to the sheared off studs and backed them out of there. If you prefer I ask, I'm more than willing and can respond back to this post (as a matter of fact I will). There will be others on our forum that need to know the correct high quality studs (I'll probably need to know for the passenger side in the coming years). Thanks for asking. R...
