I want to mount up my T5 bell to the trans, and have no bolts. Any idea what size they are supposed to be?

that sounds about right (from memory) just don't force it if it stops short of snugging up.....back it out and double check

Maybe tomorrow....I find mys elf running short on days for what I want to get done, and yet I still somehow manage to find time to sit here, and drink beer......
Going to be close, to be in Colorado Springs the end of this month at this rate....But it will happen...

No sfi rated bolts? You planning on hitting up the track with this setup? Just a thought...

No, the bolts that hold the trans to the bell. Not the bell to the engine....Not planning on track days. I think I have even given up on the hundred mile an hour club..

Your wallet will thank you! ;>p Racing is the quickest way to suck money out of your wallet that I know of......even worse than kids and a wife! It's getting a bit coolish here already, so if you aren't moved in the next week or 2 - you may want to keep th snow shovel near the back of the moving truck! LOL

Yeah, it's cooling down here, too.But my plan is out that last week in November, so I should be OK. I just need an extra two weeks to head south!
I just want to be able to drive the car, and have fun. Not race it, but enjoy running it through the gears for sure!
