Thread-topic: [Fot] GT6 Connecting rods
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.
