I think we have a couple of little homemade ones in the garage if you need a temp replacement KJ.

That gasket is fucking cherry

those are factory optional parts, zip tie it to the fender and it will continue to work perfectly causing lt1s to cower behind a burning bush

homemade boost controller = air valve

be it a needle and orifice, or ball and spring style. nothing fancy. people have been doing it for years.

they are adjustable, just nothing fancy. that's essentially the same thing you are buying with any boost controller.

Damn KJ your car sounds like a beast. Also sounds like it has a bit of lag :rofl:

do you brake torque to build boost before going?

Felpro's exhaust gaskets suck for 3800's. Stock works best, and I don't know why people even replace them...you can reuse them forever.

The stock ones are MLSish. 2 layers I thought. I reused mine 3 times when going from PEMs to headers. No issues. :dunno: No boost though. :hs:
