Awesome car that does deserve respect. 8)

As for flywheel bolts breaking off did you fit ARP bolts to it after that?
I have done research on the availability of ARP bolts for the G16B crank to flywheel and pressure plate to flywheel. I am not sure if it will be the same in your case with the G13B and AWD combo but it 'may' be similar and thus may help.

viewtopic.php?f=11&t=32927
Refer to very last post in the chain for info on ARP flywheel / pressure plate bolts.

Cheers,
Damian

We've dowelled the crank/flywheel and put ARP PRO bolts from a 4AGE in it now. Hopefully that'll fix it.

Honestly im thinking about torching the thing. Its a constant source of frustration due to a lack of time to work on it.

Next dyno run wont be for another couple of weeks. Mick(owner) had to go back up North for work... will update this as soon as its back on.

To note: it did go back and the new flywheel bolts are fine. Did 4 power runs, then had a water pump gasket failure. This was from the alloy bolts used to fasten it which seem to be more for aesthetics than function. Not a big drama but just ran out of time, as we couldnt book any more dyno time while Mick was still here.

I think it will be there with any luck.

As anyone who has played with cars knows that when you think everything is sorted little things tend to stop it being so.

Good luck to the Brothers I will try and make it out this weekend to what promises to be a good first run for ITSMAD in 4x4 form.
