Turbo inlet casting, bad for seized bolts that break even with heat removal

We mill the original broken bolt out and cut new threads, We prefer to use the original casting OEM. The after market has had sealing issues previously and causes a loss of power.

New inlet pipes installed, new gaskets, this should last us a good while & no leaks equals proper fueling and combustion.

Unit re-installed all that lacks are finishing touches and final test drive.  We perform 3 complete heat cycles and 50 miles of road testing. This insure we deliver a quality product.

After Main Grounds are installed on a cleaned block. A quick splash of paint to protect from corrosion in the future.

Lastly Air Intake Box Latch was not secured well. A couple small bolts and nuts saving a couple hundred dollars instead of buying a replacement.
