    What did you do about the crank bolt? Stock is a TTY bolt and the one in the stage 2 kit was a little longer than stock if I remember. I assume it's also a TTY bolt. Couldn't find a replacement when I looked.

    I installed another crank bolt....used red loctite and torqued to 90ft lbs. Never had another issue. Not sure why the first two didnt hold...maybe oil in threads.

    I guess this is why you ignored my PM about the crank.

    Did you get a new one from Procharger? I've seen ARP bolts but they're stock length and not 120mm like the stage 2 bolt supplied with the kit.

    Did you have any more issues after going to 90lbs? I am fighting this demon now.

    Are you using a flexplate/flywheel stop? What balancer?

    Are You fighting the balancer bolt coming loose or the eccentrics? No after I re-torqued it down that last time it has never loosened up again.

    I went through this but didn’t get as lucky as you. Mine was found to be only slightly loose however it broke the oil pump gear and trashed my crank. I chalked it up to install error on my part but who knows. I ended up replacing the crank and had it double keyed, installed an ATI balancer, and a bolt on pulley. We also used and MMR support washer and ARP bolt. So far so good with a best of 8.78 in the 1/4.

    There is a tool that bolts in place of starter that holds the flexplate. It's a must have for 6r80 to torque the balancer bolt. Manual cars can just put in gear and pull ebrake.
