View Full Version : Sr20det oem main bolts question

01-03-2020, 12:16 PM
Hey so I just got done rebuilding my sr20det but before i put the oil pans on I had one thing that was bothering me. My question is and Ive heard from some people that yes you can, but can the OEM main bolts be re-used? If so how many time? I re-used mine because I heard they are not TTY.

Thanks yeah they torqued down to 65 ft/lb just fine as well I had to clean the threads a bit aside from that worked perfect.

you can resuse them for sure. but 65ft/lb seems isnanely tight for them

Really? I thought that was oem spec

I looked in the fsm for Sr20det and it said 24-28ftlbs and then another 40-50 degrees after that

it was a multi step process
I referenced an s14 sr20det fsm
