    Just thought id post up a build i just started for my dad, he picked up a new 16 a few weeks ago. We put it on the dyno last week to get a baseline, made 607/573. Currently doing a 2.75 upper, ATI balancer, ARH headers and mids, bwoody intake and heat exchanger, t stat, alky control dual nozzle meth kit, and a nitrous outlet plate kit, dual JLT catch cans, and a set of ID1300s

    Just had my first set back, im attempting to have it done by friday to get it tuned Saturday. Went to take the pulley ring off the hub to install it and one of the bolts was cross threaded from metco so i had to drill it out and tap it.

    Not good. Strange because nothing is torqued from them.

    FYI - you'll need a DSS driveshaft ASAP with the increase in power

    Im guessing there was just a burr from tapping the hole and it hung up the bolt. I've used tons of metco stuff with no issues. Im sure they would have replaced the hub but i didnt wanna risk not having one back by the weekend

    The bolts are threaded in fully by hand before packaging, so it could not have been cross-threaded. As we discussed on the phone, your suspicion of debris in the thread is likely the explanation. We have since implemented additional steps in the assembly process to ensure that this can't happen again. Sorry for the minor delay...Glad you were able to get past it.

    Thanks again,

    Its no problem, stuff happens. Like i said i had no doubts you would have taken care of it, you have excellent customer service. But it was no big deal for me to fix it. Ive used lots of your products on various cars and everything has always worked great.

    Pulled the blower back off so i could drill and tap it for a vacuum fitting for the meth map sensor. Went ahead and put the ID1300s in and mocked up the nitrous before i set it back on.

    Gonna shorten the bwoody intake an inch to make up for the nitrous plate. Otherwise everything seems to fit fine
