Obviously, use your manufacturer's specs first. The flywheel specs below are the same as stock.
Suggested torque specs: If your clutch kit did not come with torque specs, here are some suggested specs for the G60/vr6 kit. These specs are superceded by any kit specific instructions. Medium strength threadlocker is suggested on the bolts and your new flywheel bolts should already have threadlocker on them. *According to the Permatex blue medium strength Loctite technical sheet, no adjustment in torque is needed. This is only for this exact product, always check your specific threadlocker's technical sheet for any adjustment torque when threadlocker is used.
G60 flywheel: stage 1: 22 ft-lbs. stage 2: 44 ft-lbs. final stage: additional 1/4 turn (90o turn)
VR6 pressure plate: hand tight, then tighten diagonally in stages to a final torque of 15 ft-lbs. (this keeps the pressure plate flat while tightening)
