Do the TR6/GT6 Carrillos have the same teeny-tiny little rod bolts that the
Carrillos for my 1500 Spit do? I think they're 1/4", with a torque spec of
something like 18 lb/ft? I just don't like those. Granted, never had one
fail, but I also have been replacing them every once in a while at something
like $37 per bolt. You're supposed to inspect them frequently by checking to
see whether they have stretched at all, but I've never come up with a really
reliable way of comparing the length of one particular rod bolt upon
disassembly against its length at assembly.

The most cost effective thing you can do to your engine is spend a lot of money
on a set of Carrillo's!
Mine are about 16 years old.
