Yes we use the impact to put them on as well.....

BTW......the 2.75 Socket is standard size for the Center-lock wheels used in TransAm and IMSA....
Porsche is 450 Ft/lb also, I bought a 4' torque wrench to install on my GT3 and it takes a 6' breaker bar to remove. I have given myself carpal tunnel in both hands banging on the knock offs so now I need to follow Morris lead and get SS nuts. I can no longer even swing my lead knock off hammer.
