    Torque Specs for ST Build

    Thought I would post some torque specs that I have been compiling. I am planning on installing the VFF700 ST kit either this weekend or next depending on when it arrives. Then in march over spring break I will be doing all the drivetrain mods. There are a few missing in the second table that I will try to fill tomorrow when I can get back to my Bentley manual. Some specs that I have had trouble finding were the specs for the subframe to motor mount bolts. I did list what I found on E90post, but I am not clear if that is all the bolts.

    Let me know if you think I am missing anything and I will add them.

    Also the +#* is for additional turning of the bolt after torquing in degrees. If anyone wants this in a .docx file let me know.

    @Sticky could you allow me to update the original post with these numbers or do so yourself?

    Goodluck on your ST install OP

    I hope you can get past all the other bugs and get some good 1/4 and vbox data.

    As it stands now, I plan on going to the first street night at the strip on 3/23. They then have street nights every other Friday most of the time until the Fall. And they are 5 mins from where I live. Click here to enlarge

    If there are no misfire / tuning issues I am going to try and get on the dyno with the stock clutch before I do the second half of the install. If the clutch slips then I will be back with the Spec 2+ & steel FW a couple of weeks later.
