    We didn't get the crack test done there, but we had a bit of a shave on the billet flywheel we use. Ours was a bit cheaper.

    It's good insurance , and good sense....you'd be making gobs more grunt than us, we're just revving the ring out of it for a couple o miles

    10 bucks says I break ours first.:rockon:

    Glad to hear you got it done Iblown as i said earlier in thread well worth paying someone else to do it and it doesnt cost much. Rather than doing some half arsed home job as some people suggested.

    Hey mate long shot but you dont happen to have the CAD drawings for the manifold flanges still do you? Family member can CNC laser cut them for me if I can get some CAD drawings.

    Exhaust manifold flanges? Sure do $50 and their yours in .DXF format. Otherwise you can spend the 3 hours drawing it up lol.
