The very first bolt hole on passenger side of exhaust manifold is stripped. Well not actually on the manifold but the bolt hole for it on engine. I took off exhaust mani to put in a new gasket and some copper spray on there and me and my dsm bud noticed it just kept turning when trying to tighten it. I didn't over torque it for sure. It is just stripped from previous owner. I do not like it just snug in there. Any advice on how i can fix this? Can i use a helicoil? I have no experience in dealing with this problem. Thanks.
