Hey Roush Stage 4,nice to see you on this site. I think you may have something here.I thought about doing something similar. I am a jeweler and have acess to a laser welder, which would weld the holes quite easily. Man I love that car of yours,turbo looks great on it.
Thanks BKid! I roam every now and then.
Sounds like you have the perfect setup. For anyone thinking about doing this mod...pay close attention to whether you are looking at a passage hole, or a bearing pressed into a hole. There are a few bearings that should be removed as well. They are just pressed in and come out relatively easy with a small drift punch tapped from the opposite side in which they were pressed.
