What size drill bit for helicoil? M8 x 1.25 Metric Coarse

I'm ordering a M8 x 1.25 Metric Coarse helicoil set but it doesn't include the taping bit.

What size do I need to order?

thanks

Have you tried the heli-coil website? The drill size is etched on the heli-coil tap itself. If someone hasn't answered by the time I go out to my trunk, I'll look for you.

This chart says 8.3mm http://www.thorintl.com/Drill-Sizes-...ils-Metric.htm

You will most likely need the special size provided in the heli-coil kit.
