The other issue is the FSM specs those bolts at 114.3 ft/lbs. it's actually 114.3 Nm, or 80 ft/lbs (for the front)

My Brembos came on JDM Spec-C knuckles, and when I removed the bolts the holes and bolts were like new. :-D

I should've sent them to a Machine Shop to get TimeSerted, but I didn't remember until after I sent them to powder.

You bet your ass I used a healthy dose of Copper Anti-Seize on each bolt..

I recently had one of my front Brembo caliper bolts become loose, after it was drilled out last year. I tightened it up, and of course the threads stripped out. I ended up picking up a Time-Sert kit from Bel-Metric in Tewksbury, MA. They are right off rt. 3 and are an official Time-Sert dealer.

I also picked up a Time-Sert tap guide as well. Went home and did everything by hand with a tap wrench, and it came out 100% perfect. For Brembo's, you want the 16.2mm carbon steel inserts. Do NOT get the stainless steel ones. (these should only be used where necessary, such as medical or food industry)

Yes I did - but I used the tap guide as well. I honestly haven't drilled many things like this before, so I just squeezed the tap guide against the surface of the caliper as hard as I could, to ensure it was aligned straight. This allowed the tap wrench/bit to be pretty much straight.

The entire process took me about 30 minutes or so, and for the actual tapping part, I did the "few threads in, back it all out" method.
