jumped on those when i needed the same thing. People say its too much money, but try getting same bolts at any local shop, and it will be about the same, less than 3 bucks a pop for each bolt...

You are smoking crack. I had to acquire all of my bolts and it was about $8.00 + tax. I did it at PepBoys.

If they are the same as a KA (thread/pitch), then it is M10 X 1.5

Lengths for a KA bellhousing can be found here:

SR20 bellhousing lengths may be different (???)

Hope that helps...

There are two diameters for the SR bolts. The FSM shows the ones that go into the pan, these are the same diameter as the KA bolts (10mm I think). The others are 12mm diameter, and I think the pitch is 1.75, Home Depot, Lowes, ACE hardware all have these. The lengths are close and 1 or 2 washers gets them right.

I think bolt quality has a lot to do with it. Theres a big difference between a cheap bolt and a high quality (high grade) bolt. You get what you pay for.

whatever dude! i bought grade 8 bolts at pep boys. Mickey mouse POS bolts??? It is a F'ing bolt dude, get over it. My bolts aren't going to break or anything! they are grade 8 hardware! You got ripped and all you had to do was figure out that there are only two different bolt sizes and then look at the service manual for the lengths! You can buy good bolts anywhere! you think my tranny is going to fall off or something??? LOL

Just a nitpick (sorry). Metric bolts are rated by "class" rather than SAE "grade". A Metric class 8.8 bolt is roughly equivalent to SAE Grade 5. Just FYI. But with 10+ M10 bolts, I wouldn't worry about 8.8 vs. 10.9 or whatever...it'll be good enough. I just wouldn't get unrated hardware.

you are right Asad. My bolts said 10.2 which is why i said grade 8.

thx everybody.

so, i know the correct lengths per the fsm. so do we agree that there are m10 1.5 and m12 1.75?

guess jetdriver gets a cookie.....

should this be archived?

Junkyard man. Free+2 dollar entrance fee. You will get origional high grade bolts, and other various bolts, sensors, emblems, ignitors, coils, 02 sensors, missing lug nuts. GET DIRTY
I have made the mistake of buying bolts from the local hardware store, and I will never do it again. I like to keep my bolts 10-14mm even and 17mm+ odd. The bolts from the hardware store could b different. Maybe a 16mm or 18mm.

"we don't have sr20det rwd trannys here in our junkyards. "
It can come off a lot of other import cars. Nissan cars are the best to try. ka24e, try vg30e, etc...

from what i have read on here, the ka bolts aren't the same as the sr ones. i figured it would be easier to ask on here what the proper bolt sizes are than to randomly try to find old bolts in a junkyard.

I have the bolts sitting on my bench downstairs but I have no way of knowing the tread size.
