Leave it to Doug to find crate bolts! I wonder what Mulligan will have to say now?

Crate bolts are available in many places. They aren't the correct bolt though for a Gm 602 or 604 crate motor , the bolts that come from Gm, are stamped Gm and also have a very small bar code on them also.

Correct, they stick out like a sore thumb, not only do they not have the markings of the GM bolt, but most do not have the proper finish and shape. Those who think that they can pass them off to there tech inspector, I have a nice car for you, 1984 Lada like new, still with the original factory rust.....

Each crate bolt requires its own multiple torque specs to break clean. For example the head bolt is 40/50/65 lbs.

What good is cheater parts, if you don't install them properly?

Lafrance Performance, I would like to see a set of these bolts.. There was even tech last year at one of my hometracks to make sure they were the proper bolts, with the write markings in them, and all your gonna do if you do decide to sell these bolts is get a fine if you get caught, Printed right in the Dirt Rule book. I understand your a engine builder and it's your job to sell, just watch out it doesn't backfire.

WRG isn't even using the crate bolts anymore so the deal is pointless anyhow, unless your track is still using them. LaFrance is correct though, the proper bolts are obtainable as well, you just need the proper channels to get them.

If they would just seal them the way they sealed the ct525's, this wouldn't be an issue.
