    I have an EG hatch w/ a poor mans type R. My top trans mount(not torque mount)is dis-connected from the case. There are no threads left in the case for the bolts. My question is do i need a new case? or can i re-tap the holes, and if so were could i get the over-sized hardware? Has any one else ran into this? Sorry if this is in the wrong spot.

    Also i really dont want to helicoil. Thanks

    I'm sure you could tap it the next size up, but why not use helicoil?

    i just don't think it would hold, i feel like it wpuld be more like a band-aid then a perminant fix.

    the nuts tend to seize to the threads of the stud. i've seen the holes get stripped out pretty easily, the one bolt more than the studs though..
