  4. Looks good enough to save. plus it only has to look good in the photos so you could get away with putting a backing on it to mount using other holes and bogging and painting the rest. New plates have a different font
  5. https://www.assda.asn.au/blog/221-strengths-of-stainless-fasteners#:~:text=The vast majority of stainless,tensile strength of 500 MPa). some info here

  11. I gotta see numbers on a bit of paper tho. Cos they used to bolt a bit of metal inside the chamber of flathead to increase performance and I'm entirely sure all it did was increase preignition lol Pretty sure that one comes from the same guy who makes rings on the back of valves
  12. Also saw that being done to the high performance ecotec 3.8 moo edition. But just to the plenum and not the runners. To trick the plenum into thinking its bigger than it is as above Of course no data to back it up, but looks cool
