You didn't bolt the valve covers on, right? They'll make it easier to sneak the PEM'* in if they're off.

valve covers are bolted down. Meh, I can handle putting them back on with the valve covers installed...it does make alot of room though

And you cleaned up your SC outlet more? Those sharp edges are going to kill you.

That'* going to hurt you. If you look at all the SC'* I've done, and boosty too, those sharp edges are gone for a reason. That'* more important than opening up the bolt bosses in the outlet. Far more important.

How much heat can those edges possibly create? I spent a good hour just polishing the finished product with the dremel.

Alot of heat. Every sharp edge is worse than a rough edge.

You actually made it worse than oem in that regard. At least with OEM, there weren't any sharp edges.

You knock those edges down the same way you did the rest. And do it CLEANLY. Tear it all back off, even though it'll cost you more oil. Your gasket should be ok.

I'm not singling you out, Matt, but this is a good opportunity to show WHY I regret showing anyone how to do this.

If you don't understand the concepts and techniques (I cautioned you about this long ago), you shouldn't do it. You'd have been better off leaving it as it was.
