    Or in other words, will I be able to use the bolts that currently hold my A4LD bellhousing to the block for the T5 bellhousing?

    bellhousing bolts are fine, flywheel bolts are NOT. The flexplate (auto) bolts are shorter than the manual flywheel bolts.

    Excellent. All I need to get, then, is flywheel bolts. My Ford dealer didn't have them, where'd you guys get yours?
