A common weak point found when tuning the 4AG engine is from the crank cab bolts being insufficient to cope with the high stress loads from extreme engine speeds. The weak crank cab bolts can result in the stock crank cab bolts breaking or excessive loads on the bearings causing rapid irregular wearing. In the worse case scenario this can lead to engine failure. The TOMEI ladders also aid further in increased block rigidness to help support the crank cab bolts and maintaining the reliability of the bearings for longer engine life and increased durability for constant high end performance use. In the 4AG engine which assures high revolution conversion, it is the item which cannot be missed. When aiming to use the 4AG for high end engine speeds this is an absolute must to include in your engine to cope with 10,000+ RPM

BOLT STRETCH LIMITS
Bolts and screws in general will stretch when placed under stressful conditions. The stock bolts will tend not to return perfectly to its original shape once stretched due to the manufacturing methods used for the original purpose of the bolt design. Tuned engines will go through many procedures which require the bolts to be reused during every step. When having a dummy head installed and getting a bore and hone, when checking for bearing clearances and so on. So when the bolts are removed and torque up repeatedly bolt stretch management will then become difficult to manage the and retain the strict clearances required. The TOMEI Stud bolts are the best choice for high performance precision engines which require the fixed elastic range of the bolt set for repeated use and to maintain performance. The TOMEI Bolts will keep your engine together when needed most.



ROTATING SURFACE HEAT TREATMENT
Rotation processing is the method of Rotating Die and Work Hardening the raw core of the bolt is placed on the cradle between the two rotating die with pressure applied from both sides. The metallic crystals within the bolts are then deformed at a microscopic scale, and then interacted with one another to make up a strengthened bolt that carries increased yield strength. The chromoly steel of the Tomei strengthened bolt is first heat treated and rolled on the rotating die, increasing impact resistance, surface strength, and longevity. These standards add up for the highest quality product available.


ANGLE TORQUE BOLT TIGHTENING METHOD
An engine cannot be properly built without the use of the angle torque method when tightening certain bolts. It is necessary to utilize a special angle gauge when tightening strengthened studs and connecting rod bolts. Applying torque to the bolts without this specialized tool can lead to immediate or eventual catastrophic failure of the engine assembly.
Lack of bolting force Excessive bolting force
Head bolt ・Leaking gas, water, oil caused by lack of the sealing pressure
・The further fall of bolting force, loosening, and engine breakage.
・ Leaking gas, water, and oil from excessive bolting or failure of sealing pressure.
・Breakage of the cylinder from distortion.
・Poor piston clearance caused by cylinder distortion.
Crank bearing cap bolt
Conrod bearing cap bolt
・Worn out of the engine by bad bearing assembly.
・Noise by too much clearance of bearing.
・The further fall of bolting force, loosening, and engine breakage.
・Worn out of the engine by bad bearing assembly.
・Worn out of the engine by poor clearance of the bearing.



TORQUE NUMBERS CANNOT BE TRUSTED
Engine components that require precision accuracy when tightening its bolts cannot be trusted with basic torque figures. This is due to 80~90% of the friction is lost on the surface of the thread and the seat when tightened, with the correct figure being at 10~20% of the torque applied. The surface of the thread and the seat depends on the roughness of each surface and the lubrication state, so that no matter how accurate the torque specs are specified it cannot be trusted.

Please use an Angle Guage as well when torquing up these TOMEI Reinforced Bolts.
