Thank you. Watched the video a few times. Do y'all think I should just jump on it and save $250+. Or should I take it to a shop..

I didn't know you were supposed to oil it. Never oiled mine and it has been doing good for about a year now while boosted.

Been trying to track down an in-lbs torque wrench to do the install and didn't realize it would be so hard. It seems any car shop that rents tools only has ft-lbs and if I wanted to special order one since they don't carry any for sale it'd be like $200+. It was suggested to me to check Harbor Freight and looking online it seems they indeed have one, but i question the quality of it since the price is so low and its not a tool I'd want to go mega cheap on to the point it isn't accurate or doesn't click and ends up snapping bolts.

Can someone chime in on what they used, where they got theirs from, or if you think this particular one will do the job?

I did mine last week and I also had this problem. Ended up just torquing by hand. Then I found one laying around and used it. Did ft/in conversion in my head and it all worked fine.. Used one of these

Yea i didnt really want to mess with the Ft/lbs one since i was afraid the %error in the setting it is on could be potentially way out of proportion and end up over torquing to like 115 or something, but I guess i can just set it a bit lower to play it safe.

A high end ft/lbs torque wrench used cautiously is probably still better than a cheap in/lbs one that forgets to click.

Don't know if it's just me, or I can really feel that small boost at high rpms lol. Either way, I make stops at the gas station more often now

What was the little vacuum block he installed at the very end? Is that something that comes with the motordyne spacer?

I did it like the manual stated if you don't have a torque wrench, which is wearing a leather glove etc. I had no issues at all. Thankfully
