Anyone got one laying around they want to sell to an inmate.
I think DMS does them pretty quick, also for even less down time, there is a company ( I forget the name, maybe some one on here knows) that makes the welding plates. You can be up abd running in half a days time.

If you have a welder or know someone....the plates are a good option.

Not to thread jack Dave, but at what point is the reinforcement deemed necessary? After pulley swap?

I'm trying to address the cooling before the pulley swap. Want to do a 2.5 or maybe a 2.4 upper, solid isolator, injectors and a tune. Nothing crazy.

i dont know if people are actually paying it right now but bricks and lids are asking HUGE dollars right now, you are much better off to have it welded yourself
its not a problem for any decent welder and not worth shipping one back and forth to have it done.

There is no real point not to do it...especially if you are going to be making any boost above stock...but there can be failures on stock boost pressures.

Im pretty sure the prices and availability on these bricks/lids are crazy right now.

I might wait if you can.

they are out of stock , people who have their hands on them are asking stupid money. i dont think anyone is actually paying it though lol

but why would you buy anything when all you have to do is take it to a welder and spend like $50
