Hi all, for those of you who may be familiar with the installation of Comptech's Titanium strut tower brace, I think I have found some errors in the installation instructions.
Regarding the part in the instructions that says: "Tighten equally all mounting nuts on shock tower and on cowl. (Do not tighten Titanium bar bolts on end of tube yet). Torque 8mm nuts to 16ft/lbs and 10mm nuts to 24 ft/lbs"
I noticed that the two nuts that the factory strut brace uses are 12mm, and the inboard center nut (C in the instructions) is 14mm. The confusing part is that the Comptech instructions reference a 12mm and 14mm socket in their suggested tool list, but these size nuts are never referenced after that.
Service manual says 16 lbs-ft is the correct torque for the cowl nuts and the strut tower mounting nuts. So which nuts are Comptech suggesting be torqued to 24 lbs-ft?
Also, the allen bolts seem to be 6mm, but Comptech refers to them as 8mm (part E in the instructions). I find it surprising that there could be this many errors in these instructions considering how long this piece has been out.
Thanks to anyone who may be able to clear this up. I also sent email to Comptech, I will post their reply if/when I get one.
