Beware, that might be in-lbs instead of ft-lbs... I already made that
mistake on a temp sensor and sheared it right into the head ! Also, when you
say 14mm, are you referring to the hex size or the bolt thread diameter ?
14mm is the size of the wheel bolts, so I guess you are referring to the
head diameter.

Anyone know the bolt torque for the main caliper carrier bolts for an '02
S4? They're 14mm 10.9 class bolts so the charts are telling me to put 117
ft./lbs on it... seems like too much, but then again those are huge bolts.
