    The wraps tend to smoke when new because of the chemicals they put into it, but that'll eventually go away.

    But if your manifold is cracked there is no way to tell without removing the wrap.

    Yeah that's what I've been doing moving forward, albeit I have also wrapped subaru headers in the past.

    Interesting - if thats the case then I can use ceramic coating + a wrap on top, since my major fears was developing cracks overtime.

    The point I brought up was what was being discussed awhile back...

    No problem. Iconel can be a pain to work with though, and it's quite expensive.

    The reason why wraps cause alot of failures is because it prevents the expansion and contraction of the metal, condensation is also a large factor - albeit the new silicone sprays that modern wraps...

    Ok thanks for your replies everyone, I will likely wait till a future black friday sale and just buy the splock too. If there is a chance that I will have to add extra torque onto the bolt I may as...

    Having a template to check fitment before purchase would still be better, that way I or any other customer, can decide if they want to overtorque the bolt to make it fit. Because again the main...

    I'm not sure about the torque specs so I couldn't tell you.
    IMO it's too much of a gamble to mess with these bolts especially since they're having issues already.

    Over tightening a factory bolt is the sketchy bit. So that's why, imo, it's better to have a template for those of us who don't want to force the bolt. So if it fits then fantastic we can buy it, and...

    That was the suggestion on their site, but i'm not going to do that since it's the sketchiest means of making it fit. So for me if it fits then fantastic, if not then I'll get a splock and hopefully...

    Hey Chris,

    do you think it's possible to have the bolt hole pattern as a printable template? This way potential buyers can check to see if the bolt holes line up with their crank pulley holes...

    Yeah you're right!

    It looked so much like the m2 cooler I thought they just made slight adjustments that made it fit other N55 equipped cars and dropped the price.

    My mistake.

    Nice, I love CSF's stuff!

    But it's not a new product, I think its been out since 2016-2017 time frame, and the price dropped from $599 to $529 which is nice, and its PnP which is nice too. I think...

    Will doing this multiple times affect the biting surface of the crank? That's just my fear that if I do this a couple of time the material on the crank will weaken making the splock able to just...

    You have to remove the timing chain and in order to remove the whole chain assembly instead of leaving it in the block you would have to remove the hub. Plus while it's out why not change the timing...

    I would like more info as well, in particular images of the test setup and the marks the splock makes when it bites into the crank and the splines after it breaks the crank.

    1) yeah because it's such a light piece does that mean it's super flexible? If so that's bad. I'm worried that when the crank bolt backs out it will force the hub outwards with it, and if the capture...
