I'm glad it helped!     Saving one person a bit of time makes the effort of filming worth it.

You may want to check my accuracy, but my FSM says lug nut torque should be 72-87 ft.lbs. or 98-118 Nm, considerably lower than the 101 ft.lbs. you've got in the video.

They raised it over the years, in the late 70's early 90's it was 51-57ftlbs and late 80's early 90's it was 72-87ftlbs. I do my own thing, 30ftlbs to seat and center, 60ftlbs and then 90ftlbs finishing torque in the star pattern. I have spacers so i don't want to take any chances.

Interesting that that would change. Here's the page from my 95 FSM that I've followed for years.

Rod bolt torque specs changed on mitsu engines over the years too. Older ones will say like 24 ft-lbs+90* new ones will say something like 38 ft-lbs, no additional.
