They are 1 use only

g60 flywheel: 22 ft lbs, stage 1

44 ft lbs, stage 2

final torque is an additional 1/4 turn.

stock pressure plate is 15 ft lbs, I suggest tightening them diagonally and in stages until they are hand tight. Then to 15 ft lbs

use a tiny drop of locktite on the bolts and note that it's ft lbs, not Nm.

Use red locktite too, it's the stronger type.

The pressure plate bolts will be hand tight pretty quickly,I suggest after hand tight, 1 turn at a time until they are wrench tight, then to final torque. The reason why is because the pressure plate springs are working against the bolts.

It's because the DMF can fail and you can't put a VR6 clutch kit on the DMF it won't fit. They do fit on the G60 flywheel .
