Re: Mod guides and FAQ's on other boards

Front O2 sensor plug = M18 x 1.5

Up-pipe EGT plug = M12 x 1.25

ECU cover plate = M6 x 1.0

Intake manifold to TGV risers = M6 x 1.00 x 40

Sway bar bolts (bushings and endlinks), strut tops, ram intake duct, the spare tire hold-down, plastic splash shield, and jacking plate = M8 x 1.25

Exhaust bolts and a bunch of other stuff under the hood (green brackets for fuel rail, radiator mount) = M10 x 1.25

EGT bung, lug nuts, shift knob and rear subframe bolt = M12 x 1.25

Gallery threading on the block for oil pressure/temp sensors = M18 x 1.5

Oil drain bolt = M20 x 1.5

Uppipe stud: automotive stud, M10 x 1.25 by 41mm

The female fitting on the clutch line is M10x1.00

The banjos on the brake calipers are also M10x1.00

The banjo on the turbo for the oil feed line is M10X1.5

Top-mount intercooler mounting bolts are 8X1.25

Rear seat upper part (3 of them) are 10x1.25

Rear seat lower part (2 of them) are 8x1.25

Front fender attachment inside the engine bay is M6 x 1.0 x 10

Breather lines attaching to TMIC (3) are M6 x 1.0 x 10

Tow hitch bolt are M14 x 1.5

Model Year or Make-Specific

NOTES

If you can find it, grade 8 hardware is the way to go, especially high torque spec ones.

Bigger bolts/plugs such as M18 x 1.5 can be found at many automotive parts stores as oil drain bolts either with the oil change supplies or behind the counter.
