The manifold to turbo studs would pull out and we'd have to have a 4,000 page discussion before realizing V-bands are better... then our housing bolts that aren't safety wired would come loose ******* up the CHRA... THEN we'd be screwed.

I thought we already decided on an LS1 with rear-mounts for this project?

It beez too hot. I'm not believing a word until there is some actual proof to back up these claims. they have only seen it through a 16'' land based telescope. How they figure it has liquid water is a wonder to me. Still an awesome find. Any planetary find is huge since we have only found so few.
