ok i read up in the forced induction forum, that it is metric, 4.5mm i believe, anyhow i think i will just buy both to be on the safe side, i will tell you guys my results, but anouther forum member said he had done 2 and they were both 4.5mm. so i guess that is my best bet. sorry for the stupid post. i feel dumb.
