Yeah no joke! thats an expensive mistake!! Ruin'd my DET!
Torq wrench is your friend. ALWAYS Torq to spec! Don't risk alot of money over being lazy.
Atleast george was able to get the DET motor fixed, gonna make me jealous if he ever gets a bigger turbo ***
EDIT: Nah, i UNDER torqed a few. well actaully, I over torqed one, and strip'd it out. Being lazy, I figured it'd be ok to run the car without that bolt. You know, to hell with keeping spinning objects in balance at 7500 rpm. I think It made it a week before the flywheel bolts backed out and destroyed the crank.
