Yes, the bolts i got are triple squared.
I think I'm a little too curious, last night I spent some time researching manual swaps. The only thing about that would be the wiring and coding aspect of it. I plan to purchase Maestro 7 software, so I'd have the programming software, but I'm not sure I'd like even the minimal bit of wiring I'd have to tackle. I really hate digging into factory wiring harnesses, tho it looks like I'll have to resolve the ecu power issue. I've already ordered the parts for the automatic, so I'll stick with it, but I probably would've pursued it a bit earlier. I'll be fine with an automatic if I can set it up to shift similar to a dsg, meaning the torque converter is locked in every gear with the possible exception of 1st. If I understand correctly, that's how they are supposed to drive anyhow. Anyone know for sure? Mine was messed up when I got it so I never knew what it was actually supposed to be doing.
