best,

Mine is just like this... and I have two problems with it....

1- after about 20~30 minutes, the ".15 NS" gasket gets destroyed and I get some leaks...
2- If stock, this would give me about 106mm of pipe lenght... which is too much, but then if I remove some material I can get 102mm, which is still too much, and the coupler touches very little of the manifold, so the zip-ties have very little space to get it tightened....

cheers....

I saw a cool little gadget in the last edition of RCDriver. Anyone of you saw or used this before? It's the first I've heard about it.

I have read that the thing does not work very well, and that the resizing done by Osrockets is much better.

I saw that Rc Driver. I guess if you need a quick fix and your engine is about dead you can pinch it with that sleeve pincher. I read that they do a few times. But I think if you have the time send it to OS to do the real work. If you at a track mo back up P/s or engine and you have NO compression. Quick fix
