The bolt is still the same bolt...merely shorter.

How much strength do they need? I'm no engineer...however most SC p&p'* do this and don't have issues.

Full bolt strength is achieved with two times the bolt diameter in length or depth of thread.

Which is why I'm leaving Haro a little bit of extra on the inside instead of a flush cut. Keep in mind the holding strength varies by the material you're threading into. In this case, it'* aluminum. I'll blend it and make it look good, he'll cut his bolts slightly (or maybe I will since I have them here) and he'll still have very good flow.

Paul, did you see your inlet and outlet on page 3?

Don't change the SIZE of the existing outlet. ASK QUESTIONS.
