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 These specs are superceded by any kit specific instructions.

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)
