I'm putting an a Valeo SMF kit and I have 2 questions. First is, what's the flywheel bolt torque? I've done some searching but can't find anything definitive, some people say use the stock 45 ft/lbs + 90 degrees, some say don't. I can't find anything on Valeo's website. During this search I also found that some people were saying the throwout bearing is slightly thicker, is that true? I got the kit from a mechanic who installed it for a customer then somehow ended up parting the car out, so it was new but missing the instructions and TOB.

I've installed this kit twice (two different cars) and can't recall them really coming with instructions, or at least I just followed the normal DIYs.
Pretty sure I used the factory torque setting for all bolts. The included bolts will handle the extra 90 deg. rotation.

Can't comment on the TOB, other than to say I've used the included one in both cars. One car has 15-20k miles on the kit, and the other one has maybe 1.5k miles.
