Paul, check with a machinist at work. They should have left-handed bits. If that fails, and ONLY if that fails, you could go back to the welding. That'll be a tricky job though. However, whatever hole you created in attempt #1 would make the weld stronger. Just be careful. I'd pre-oil the outer perimeter of the stud so the heat-cycling of the welding process might help loosen it.

Well I decided to take the opportunity to upgrade to a machined snout from INTENSE with new viton seal.......for that 2.6" pulley

Hopefully INTENSE will not take too much off my deposit fee when I return the old snout back to them....

Another long day. We are over schedule by 24 hours, so I have to work thru the weekend. No turkey day for me. :(

So when I got home tonight, I went straight over to the Gen V, pulled back the cover and buffed it a little, stopped and drank a beer, then came in to surf the club a little.

Have you decided on what to do with the water injection?

The only accessible location for the port in the lower manifold seems to be at the nose drive end just beside the manifold vacuum port but the fear I have is uneven distribution because that location is right in front of the port that goes to cylinder #1.

What do you think Bill

The uneven distribution was what I was afraid of. What about putinga nozzle on each end?

I'm thinking now of re-installing it in the same location before the rotors on the outlet of the throttle body.

I think that the concern of losing rotor clearance because the rotor coating is lost thru chemical attack from the Methanol is only specific to the Gen 3 models because they have an Epoxy coating whereas the Gen 5 has a more resilent teflon coating.

Paul have you considered having a plate made to be installed between the LIM and SC? Much like an intercooler would be but with a nozzle or nozzles for your injection?

No the Gen V coating ( abradable rotor coating ) actually wears together and cannot be mixed with any liquid or you will loose the efficency in the rotors. It is not a teflon coating.

Also why are you going to smaller pulley yet ? The rotors are going to give you more boost equivalent to a 2 tenths drop in pulley size. Then again the porting should alow you to flow more anyway .

I don't think it would be difficult to inject post-rotor in the LIM at all. Should be a piece of cake to insert your nozzle on the ND end of the LIM. If you do, take the time to install a temp sensor also.

You don't think that the water won't go to the closets inlets it finds while the car is under boost?
