Default Stripped water pump bolt which Helicoil kit?

Borrowed a friends 3/8 torque wrench and thought it would click when it hit 9lbs but it doesn't and instead just gives a little bit which I didn't notice. Well needless to say I ended up pulling the threads out of the engine block for that one bolt.

I've read that Helicoil kits worked wonders but which one do I need?

2005 STI.

M6 x 1 or M6 x 1.25?

Thanks!

Take a bolt up to autozone or were ever your buying the kit and match it up but i belive its a 1.25. Gl. When i tighten waterpump bolts i just get them about as tight as i can with a 1/4 ratchet with 1 hand.

Make sure you didn't mix up timing cover bolts with the water pump ones
