    Flywheel Bolts Q

    Is it absolutely necessary to replace the flywheel bolts? I thought I read somewhere that seadoo started putting better bolts in at some point? Maybe not. Engine is a late 06. Just nervous to take on this job. But if I have to, Ill suck it up.

    My plans are to get this thing to 8650 with an ET137 and then I'm done, no more. I will be pulling the head to replace the head gasket, and will also be changing the springs and retainers, then back together with ARP head studs.

    Alright I will get it done. While I have it out, is there anything else I need to do to safely run that RPM/boost?

    The part that makes me nervous about this job is having to realign the engine.

    The realignment is not difficult with the correct tools and a shop manual!

    Upgrading flywheel bolts is without a doubt NOT NECESSARY.

    You will change them later along with a bunch of other new internal parts.

    Not necessary if you like to rebuild your engine. 30 bucks vs 2k.

    Is there anything else I should replace/upgrade while I have it out? Not looking to go crazy, just want to stay reliable at 8650rpms.
