Bandit, the new bolts are larger because they're engish, not metric like the OEM bolts.

Yes it'* a great improvement. Especially for those of us that went polyurethane. It worked out so well on the SSEi, this is actually the first thing (besides replacing the failed harmonic balancer) that I ever did to the SLE.

Did that too, didn't feel a difference. Yes I put it in right. It stills slides on its rocker panels around corners (not literally for you village idiots ). I probably should slow down to begin with.
