Welcome to the forum. Sounds like you got a nice deal on the GSX. You'll wanna post up a pic so we can see what you got! As for the tranny bolts, check out this link. It tells you the size and thread/pitch etc of each bolt basically for all major parts on these cars. Also before a moderator jumps all over you, check out our rules for posting especially number 7. Good luck!
Check out-My Build Thread!! Input wanted.

Its not really transmission tech. It is more of a newbie question. Its not a big deal at all. Plus, in the newbie section you have alot more slack when adjusting to the rules than you would be aloted in the tech sections.
So little update. I got the car running finaly and now I found that one of the brake lines have a hole in it. It realy isnt a big deal but the car also needs some other minor things that start to add up. Here it a short list if your wondering. #1. rusted hood, trunk lid, and roof. #2. front and rear bumpers are riped from car being so dang low. #3. The pas side front wheel bearing is bad. #4. the worst of all. The dang wheel lock is gone and I am playing heck trying to get one. Also i have a pic of the car for yall.
I finaly got the lug nuts off and bought new ones. I also fixed the brakes so it stops like it should. As I was on a test drive I noticed that it felt like it was running on 3 cylenders. After manny thoughts and discusions with other people I tore the head off and this is what i found,
I don't see anything wrong with that. /sarcasm. Start checking out your local DSM scene. Alot of times you will find people more than willing locally to help you out doing the work, sharing the knowledge and especially helping you source the parts to get it going again.
I would definitely check the turbo over well and pull the turbine housing off the center cartridge. That valve piece had to go somewhere so it's either stuck in the turbine housing or it made it past and out the turbo somewhere.
