Goal was to add bracing to the turbine side to add mass in order to reduce resonance...from the turbo bolts breaking thread. Also thought people concluded that making a brace for the compressor side would not help. Did the inconel turbine bolts and inconel safety wire change this?

The Inco bolts with Inco wire keep everything together, but I'm most concerned with long-term reliability and that AF manifold not cracking, ever. I'd love to hear from the engineers who put that set-up together so I could sleep a little better at night now that I'm afraid to drive Green Glory Hole. This is what happens when I let a car sit for months.
