    Update on a previous post. Cleaned up holes with unibit to nearly 13/16" installed Stage 1 / dyno tuned @ 115.10hp from 105hp. Runs strong - sounds great. A great low $$ mod !!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GAO4jFGI9VM Yankee

    Modified exhaust with 3/4 holes

    Folks, If this is old news forgive me I'm new to your forum. I got the basic idea from your achives but I decided to go with a 3/4 hole and replace the rivets with stainless steel screws. It has a unique sound and runs like a bear. Y.I.T.

    Two vboost blind holes - oil leaking

    When I replaced all the boots, I used Permatex Black on the two short bolts that cover oil passageways. One held but I'm having trouble on the 2nd bolt. I'm thinking my method is wrong. What's the proper way to apply the sealant? Thanks!
