Bolt - Exhaust manifold to Y-Pipe (LH) & Exhaust manifold & Exhaust manifold Up-Pipe (RH)
These BOLTS are genuine OEM Ford parts and carry a factory warranty. There are two variations of this both, either of which can be used for the referenced connections.

#W302352 - This variant has a wider shank (see photo). It can only be inserted in one direction with the wider shank portion in the exhaust manifold. It makes for a perfect fit, but you will have to insert the bolt through the manifold first and you won't have any play in the bolt as you try to connect the two parts so it may take a little more time to get things bolted.
#W300013 - This variant has a straight shank (see photo). It can be inserted in either direction on the manifold or up-pipe connections. It makes for a secure, solid connection but it does not have the wider shank so it does not provide as robust of a connection as the #W302352 wide shank version. Since there is a little more play before tightening and options to run it in either direction, it can be a bit easier to install.
