Mate I got the ******* at work. Sick wise I didn't get bad. No smell or taste etc and a dry cough. Hardest part was isolation from the entire family for 14 days. Zero contact missed my eldest boys 7th birthday for a virus that gave me less physical problems then a bad hangover.

Yeah just adding up some v bands and flanges cause I want the least amount of silicon joining in the pipework.

Yeah ill have to have a few id say that's is for sure but the big clamps will be used thats a given.

Now the progress has stopped because I can't get a he351 rear v band flange and v band. 4.4" or flange od of 112mm. No one in Aus has that size. Xant even find on ebay. I got send a 4inch v band and clamp from rhe turbo supplier but the od are different sizes by like 5mm even though the clamp will pull the 2 together ot would be dodgy to use the different od sized flanges yes?

So I need just the adapter flange and vband for he351. So 4.4" flanges and vband to suit. I think its about 112mm od for the flange

The clamp is what I need and just a flange that has the he351 flange and then a weld on end

I'd like to jump in here if I may. I also don't want to derail the current discussion, but I think my question may be relevant. I'm contemplating compounds on my truck as well and have a good idea of some of the required upgrades, such as head studs and clutch. I already have 5x.011 DPP injectors and a 4" straight pipe exhaust, as well as an HX35 turbo.

My question is whether or not I need to o-ring the head. I spoke with tech support at PDD and he said that, because it's a12v, I need to o-ring the head for long-term reliability. His explanation is that boost pressure rises much faster with compounds than with a single (I understand how compounds work, so I'm good on that part) and it will cause a blown head gasket over time. It sounds like good logic, but does this seem reasonable? I hear of many compound setups, but no one ever talks about o-ringing the head, just head studs for the extra boost. I'm planning on a 450-500 hp build as a daily driver with towing in the future. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Cylinder pressure due to fueling and timing, not boost, is what dictates the need for O-rings.

Can I assume, then, that no o- rings are needed at the hp numbers in aiming for? I'm also figuring no more than 50 lbs of boost.
