700/900 rear stud is slightly longer. Naturally then you would need 700/900 nuts also.

With a 5mm spacer the rim isn't hubcentic anymore so take care when tightening the nuts.

Sounds to me that you have a 850/960 starter. 99-> has a different(I'd say larger) diameter starter ring gear. If you have a solid flywheel(or <-98 dual mass), then use 960, 850 or x70 starter.

Some retailers sell a set of 6 if you ask. I'm not sure what length is the rod in a B6294T. B6284T has 139,5mm and FWD B6304/B6294S has 147mm.

Stock pistons will take much more than 450hp.
