    bpv to tmic bolts wont go in

    i just did (well still in the process of) a STI TMIC swap on my 02. I got all the hoses and what not in and im trying to finish up but i cant seem to get my bolts that go from the BPV to the TMIC to go in all the way. The BPV is really really lose now when i know it should be tight. Any thoughts?

    Put a toothpick in the hole and measure the depth. Then put that against the bolt and make sure it's not too long. The threadcount should be the same so that shouldn't be an issue. And I assume you can tell when a bolt is misthreaded.

    Those are about the only reasons I can think of for a bolt not going in all the way...

    You should not need PB Blaster to install bolts. I hope you did not strip the threads. Always start bolts with your hand. If it does not start threading easily something is not lined up correctly or the threads are not perfect anymore.
