    Thumbs up

    From the shop manual:

    This assembly uses stretch screws.
    Always use NEW screws and strictly adhere to
    the tightening procedure.

    7. Tighten connecting rod screws as follows:
    7.1 Torque both connecting rod screws of a
    connecting rod.

    CONNECTING ROD SCREWS
    TIGHTENING SEQUENCE
    FIRST STEP:

    12Nm 0.2Nm
    (106 lbfin 2lbfin)

    7.2 Use a torque angle gauge to carry out the
    second step.
    CONNECTING ROD SCREWS
    TIGHTENING SEQUENCE
    SECOND
    STEP:

    Additional 70 5

    Failure to strictly follow this procedure
    may cause screws to loosen and lead to
    severe engine damage.


    Also the rods are a cracked design and each one is unique and has to be put back together with the same bottom half oriented according to the marks made up of a dot on the sides.

    Also on your own discretion, even if the bolts are a stretch design, you normally can reuse them at least one time.

    Also, if you are rebuilding the complete engine you should really have the shop manual, PM me your email address and I'll send it to you
