    I’ve searches but couldn’t find it. The threads stripped on the rear differential cover to boomerang. I’ll be installing helicoil. What grade bolts are those?

    Thanks
    Tony

    Likely grade 8 would be more than enough for something like that and easy to find.

    Thanks, Matt! I was able to clean the bolts. Just finished torquing everything. Fill her up tomorrow and we’re hitting boosting.

    I'd recommend a Timesert over a Helicoil.

    Thanks, Paul! I got it installed and torqued last night.

    I've never used timesert but after seeing how it works, that's definitely the way to go. Easy to remove as well.
