Hi Michel,

To help out, on purpose, I bought the tool that had both the 45mm (I6) and 38mm (V8) bolt hole spacing (and I used it this week for the first time, and it worked fine on the M54).

I have plenty of (SAE) calipers and micrometers ... so if you, or anyone needs anything precisely measured either for a CAD diagram or to make their own tool, just ask and I'll make the measurements for you.
