Hey there,
When i convert the EL to T5, can i reuse the same 6 bolts from my flex plate from the auto in my flywheel? Or do i require a different length bolt? That is all,
Thank you (:

Same bolts......use Loctite 271 on the threads....make sure the threads and mounting faces are clean, and torque to 30 Nm then 115 Nm.

From memory they're an m10 and a m10 only needs 10mm of thread to be as strong as it can which would be about right For the size of the bolt and the thickness of the fly wheel

I only used manual ones because I had them. But auto ones will work fine.
