Installing Water/Meth and was prob. on my 5th beer and was drilling holes in the CAC tube getting ready to Tap it for the nozzles, well I guess I zoned out and tapped one hole alittle to big and I could almost slide it in and out with just my fingers, so I ran off to home depot real quick and bought some good ol' J-B weld and "welded" it in there in place. :doh: just thought I would share and give ya something to chuckle about and some advice don't zone out while tapping holes!

Ill post pictures of it all when done, even the JB Weld-

I won't, JB weld has a tensil strength of 3k psi and 600 degrees. I have used it on navy ships on much more high power/high temp systems.

My Nitrous Express fitting in the CAC tube was leaking around the sides so I just slapped a little JBweld around the seams and it's been holding for almost 6 months. No leaks. I just did it one late afternoon and let it cure over night. That was about 6K miles ago.
