Problem is fixed. It turns out it needed a computer reset and he didn't charge me for the spark plugs. I suppose it worked out pretty well overall.

Good to know... I better call ECS and cancel that order because the ones they have are M12x1.5x32.

Should the rear screws then be M10x1.5x32?

Can anyone explain why the front requires more torque? Don't they use the same screws?

I ask because I over-torqued the rear screws and sheared one of them completely off.
