What do you guys recommend?
Two nuts on a stud, or a bolt and a nut?

locktight and i uses bolts

Loctite is useless , Locks and seals threaded fasteners in applications that require continuous temperature resistance of up to 650°F

Most turbos run at 1000 degree Fahrenheit +

I'm not paying $50 for a small amount of hardware, that's what mc master is for.

Exactly, I was just using an example go to a hardware store like Napa and just buy 4 studs tap and buy matching nuts and you're good to go.! :)

agree on the nord lock washers. i use them on my customer cars and none of them ever have problems with nuts or bolts loosening again.
