Additional Photos


ACN Flanged Racing Intake and Exhaust Nut, 8 x 10mm, EACH were designed after evaluating all problems with other nuts. We tried to solve them all with this product! 8mm threads, with a 10mm 6pt hex, and a 13mm flanged bottom to spread the clamping forces! You can torque these to 35lb/ft, though we feel that is excessive. The threads fail at just over 40lb/ft. We have tried these in several different alloys (including Stainless Steel) and success with one combination was the one we used!

Once you use these you will never EVER go back to the Brass Nuts (that strip and round off), or the barely better 12mm ones out there.

These are a LOT smaller than 11mm on the Head, and the flange keeps the header far enough away from the nut to allow your socket or wrench head enough room to get on and off!

We use these all over because they are so useful. The obvious application is header nuts, when you have a larger than stock header. These even work on exhausts as big as 2 1/4"!!!!! The not so obvious application are to hold down your intake manifold(s)! Now you have a ton of room to use a FAST Ratchet with a long extension above the carb top! You can take a dual carb system off in under a minute after a little practice! Imagine, no more bloody knuckles after an hour of fighting your car!!!!

They are useful everywhere December 28, 2012
Reviewer: Jose Marquez from Covina, CA United States  
In addition to what's mentioned in the product description, I've used these for distributor hold down clamp, shifter, some other places. Don't go crazy on tge torque, as they do strip. The last set I bought were 10mm heads, whereas the previous ones were 3/8, not a huge deal.
