I have been trying to track down an exhaust leak. I had the car up on ramps and was looking things over when I noticed what I think is part of the exhaust flange ... it is missing the two bolts and nuts that keep it snugged up. What type of hardware do I need to track down to properly connect this flange?

That would be a Exh leak not a Vac leak , Vac leak would be between the MAF and the Intake Valves , Use a Cigar and do a smoke test for a Vac leak , Do you know how to ?

Tom
Yes, my mistake in the description. I will do a smoke test this weekend.

Regarding the exhaust leak can you direct me as to what type of hardware I need to track down to properly connect this flange?

Thank you for your help Tom and an fyi, a tuner purchase is in the near future from you!

Turns out I didnt have an exhaust leak. I got two bolts and screwed them into the other side that had threads and it secured it. It looked like a heat shield to me ... hard to see clearly with little clearance.
Thanks for your help!
