Quick release for boosting

Just for you Dave you might just like it.

Today i decided i was no longer going to pack a hex key to undo the lugs for boosting or to gain access to anything. In the last decade these two panel have come on and off my car hundreds of times and it was the only hex(allen) wrench i have ever used. (I think). Last week i ordered 6 ferrari screws from Punu for like 15 dollars and bought 6 ea of 6 mm x 15 mm regular bolts with nylock nuts. The 6mm go right through the old 10mm with no mods and the 6 Ferrari screws are the ones we all use when upgrading brake lights to leds. Fits great and looks factory to me(but i am biased).

Goth made fasteners like that. I carry a full toolbox in my car. Where would it end? Can't put thumb screws everywhere

I don't remember but all of his stuff is very reasonably priced. He just came out with a nice set of alternative heat shields for the inner CV boots.

Goth is a bright guy that is very innovative, however, I won't be adding the heat shields to my car. Very nice workmanship but without data to support the effectiveness, I'm not going to order a set.

Have you seen his posts on the thermocouple testing?

Yes, I have and I'm glad my buddy John pushed him to do it

I still plan to stay with OEM as the life is still fairly long. But for the workmanship and the price, I'd say Goth's providing lot of value.

I think if i wasnt running shielded exhaust it might be worth a try has to be better than original just by common sense. Mine lasted 14 years so as Dave stated probably not worth it. I think Dave is also running shielded headers.
